New Message Series “That is Not What I Said” starting January 3, 2021, at West Church online at www.HeadingWest.org.
Our mouths get us into trouble. We can be in the best place in our relationships and BAM! We say the wrong things or what we said is misconstrued.
Our mouths make messes but they don’t have to.
In this message series, we will explore our temperaments, what our strengths and growth areas are, and how we can all learn to communicate better so that our relationships are as great as they can be!
Journey with West Church online on Sundays at 10 AM beginning January 3 or watch on-demand!
Have you ever felt the sting of a careless comment from someone in your midst? Maybe you’ve said somethings you wish you could take back! As soon as the words came out of your mouth, you regretted saying them.
Not only do our words shape our lives, they also shape other people’s lives too!
Every day – with every word, we either help others or hurt them.
We build them up or tear them down.
Think about that for a second and let it sink in . . .
With every word we say, we either help someone or we hurt them.
We are uniquely wired to both say and hear certain words! It’s our “temperament” – our innate wiring, what we are predisposed to. Over the next several weeks at West we are going to explore the four temperaments – how we speak and hear words in our lives.
By the end of this series you will know:
- The words you need to hear from others
- The words your loved ones need to hear from you
- The words you use most likely as weapons
- The words that will wound your loved ones.
This will be a game-changer of a message series and will impact you positively in all the relationships in your life!
This study is based off the book, “I Said This, You Heard That” by psychologist Kathleen Edelman. Our spiritual focus is the verse by the Apostle Paul to a church he founded in Ephesus, “Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.” Ephesians 4:29
I look forward to diving into this with you! I have ten trillion words I use a day . . . I, just like you, need to make sure they are used to help and not hurt. Will you join me?
