Watch the language!

I challenge us all to think about the words we use in daily conversation and to remove the most violent from our vocabularies. We could take some risks and call attention to one another’s use of violent words and phrases. If we confess our own struggles and use humor, raising a question or two about word choices might help create a kinder and gentler society. Who knows? The truth is that where violence is a problem, words really matter.—America and Its Guns: A Theological Expose, page 51

I'm not a New Year's Resolution kind of guy, but this would make a good one for those of you who are...

Of course, that will last about 10 days, so why not let the Holy Spirit take your speech and season it with salt? That will definitely be more lasting!
