Crowing along the way with wisdom and practical advice
POSITIVE AND STRAIGHTFORWARD
Communication is a fascinating topic of study. Surely, writers should be the ablest communicators in the world. When I was privileged to pastor churches across the Southern States, I learned a great deal about how I might communicate clearly through the spoken and written word. There were times in the early years when I figured I could tell people what I wanted however I wanted. Needless to say, that didn’t go over particularly well.
I no longer stand imposingly behind pulpits these days. However, I continue to pursue my life-long love of communication. This community of WDC has been a quiet refuge in which I have been honored to share my thoughts and ideas, and maybe a little wisdom along the way. And I have continued to learn how to be a better writer through the many talented authors I have met and interacted with. As a cumulative learning experience, I have always been encouraged to keep things positive and straightforward. Say what you intend to say, and do so as clearly as you can. Along with that, always be kind and generous. As you have learned, be ever willing to teach others.
I continue to be thankful for my many encouragers and teachers on WDC. My new axiom is that you can teach an old dog new tricks. Thanks to all of you for teaching this old dog some very new tricks.
