Words are powerful. God uses words to create the heavens and the earth. He uses words to reveal to us His love, grace, redemptive purposes, and His moral will. He uses words to launch the Kingdom movement that declares His Good News — which are more words still!
Herein lies the challenge and a potential crisis: what are the consequences when His people no longer share His vocabulary? When His people no longer find meaning in His words? When those words are not models/symbols of the deepest parts of our life and identity? When these words are not an essential part of how we tell our story? What happens when the words God uses to reveal meaning effectively become meaningless to us?
So… this week, needless to say, we are going to look at words!
