September 25, 2018 – Faith & Public Life: The Words We Say Actually Matter
Season 11, Episode 39
It seems that too many politicians, clergy, and leaders in other sectors of life just say anything they want, all the time. On this episode of Friends Talking Faith with The Three Wise Guys we’ll discuss faith, the words we use, and whether they matter or not. It seems constant now, the barrage of words, coming from leaders in various settings, that are inappropriate, offensive, and too often bold-faced lies. Words, both textual and spoken, are central to every faith tradition. All faith traditions have something to say about words and how we use them. As the “crisis of comment” grows in America, we will take a look at why words have always mattered in faith traditions, and why they should matter to all of us. Our conversation about words, and why they matter – that’s coming up on this Friends Talking Faith.
