Can’t touch this

Just a short note about a reminder I had this weekend of why words matter and the importance of using terminology people outside your “business” understand.

My pastor commented in his sermon on our mission to touch the community.   I work with the youth group.  I’m not sure it is a good idea for me to talk about touching the people I work with.   I can’t tell parents I want to touch their children.  I’m sure the church can think of a better way to express this mission.

  1. Uh, yeah. John teaches special training for anyone who works with 0-18 year olds in the Diocese of Washington about NOT touching. Jeez, tell your pastor to get with the program!
