I am always conscious of what is being said or written, especially at church. And very sensitive about using "churchy" words. These words often have meaning that no one understands.
We use words like "seeker" which I have found, from non-churched people I hang out with, is offensive to them. They don't consider themselves "seekers". I much prefer the word "skeptic". It true and self explanatory.
We use confusing words like post-modern and emergent.
I just wish we would consider what we say and how it sounds to those who are churched.
Words are important, it's all in how you say it.
How important is this to you?
