Series: Words Matter
Picture this: a child on a playground, bravely reciting, "Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me." We've all chanted it, clung to it, hoping to shield our hearts. Yet, with time, we've all learned that words can hurt - a lot.
But what if we could change the narrative? What if our words could heal the wounds they often cause? Pastor Stephen invites us to discover the transformative power of our speech and challenges us to do more than avoid the harmful words that hurt but actively heal, uplift, and bless.
