Wordsmith: (n) a skilled user of words.
Wordsmiths are those story tellers, this who are adept at telling a tall tale. They are those people who can capture you with words and keep you coming back for more. Shakespeare, Dostoyevsky, Don Miller, Abraham Lincoln, Bob Goff, C.S. Lewis, and Victor Hugo are among my personal favorites. There are many men and women, those who are alive and those who are dead, who have written fables and biographies that have changed people’s lives, giving them hope when they have none, and challenging them when they’ve stumbled into complacency.
In a fast-paced world that communicates more with pictures today than with words, the skilled wordsmith is becoming less appreciated. More than that, there are important words that have been an integral part of our culture that have no or little relevance in today’s church. Over the next few weeks, we’ll be looking at some words that are commonly heard in the business realm of our society and how that intersects with our faith.
I believe there is a blessing waiting at the end of this journey, as we dig deeper into our faith, seeing those places when what we believe and where we work intersect. I’m excited for you to journey with me as we dig deeper into what we believe and how we communicate and live out our faith.
