What if we redefine our words to invite healing?
Church is redefined into a sanctuary to experience God’s with-ness inside, outside, in all seasons.
“Good” or “bad” is redefined as an invitation to make wise or unwise choices.
“You’re sensitive” is redefined as “you’re attuned.”
Feel too deeply? How about you have a deeply empathetic nature?
Listening over offering unsolicited advice.
Offering compassion over critiquing.
Intimacy over information.
With-ness rather than hierarchy.
Space to process, reflect and speak from discernment over impulsive action.
Creativity for pleasure over a constant need for output.
Presence over a thorough plan.
Trust redefined as patient hope in the wilderness.
What do you want to redefine?
