Part of the mission to walk in the redemptive steps of Jesus is learning to use our words in ways that give God glory and point others toward Him. In Wordship, we aim to do just that. With Wordship we endeavor to activate hearts in using the power of our speech to cultivate greater health, satisfaction, reconciliation, and healing in our conversations.
"Together, let’s use our words to heal and bring people together, like the healing balm of Gilead."President Dr. Debra A. Schwiin
Much prayer and intentionality are the way we start.
When confronted with anger or belligerence, take a breath, listen, ask questions, be curious.
Remember that everyone on the planet has been made in the image of God. Practice patience. See them as God’s child.
If a friend or family member insists on bullying you or trying to convince you of their opinion, listen, love them. Let them speak. Try to understand their point of view.
Pray for the person.
