As you perhaps read from my previous blog, I am co-writing a book on developing strong and effective governing local church, college and not-for-profit boards. The title of the chapter I have recently completed in draft form is Watch Your Words. I talk about the power of our words spoken in board meetings to bless or to “curse.” Our words can even be destructive. In biblical perspective, however, our words are to be grace giving, and focused on the others with whom we are speaking.
I seek your comments on the chapter. I must reduce the number of words I use in the draft, so your perspective will assist me. I need examples of words used in board meetings that have been sacramental or grace-giving. I look forward to your comments. Click here to read the draft chapter.
