Words
that are hurtful
can wound.

Words
that are angry
can bring division.

Words
that are false
can cause confusion and chaos.

Words
that are loving
can heal.

Honest and Gentle and Forgiving Words
… can bring reconciliation.

Empathetic and Words of Wisdom
… can breathe hope into seemingly hopeless situations.

If conversations could be
… gracious, loving and life-giving
and if conversations could be
… encouraging and affirming and respectful
the gift of listening
could open hearts and minds
and goodness, healing and Love
could surface.

Activist Martin Luther King Jr. said
“In the End, we will remember not the words of our enemies
but the silence of our friends.”
May friends not be silent.

Civil rights leader Mahatma Gandhi said
“It is better to have a heart without words
than to have words without a heart.”
May there be hearts with words
and
may there be words with heart.
