SURVIVAL TIP #5

>> December 1, 2010

TIP #5: Say nothing to which you wouldn't happily sign your name and post in the church entryway for all to see. 

Just.

Don't.

People repeat stuff. Stuff gets twisted.

You'll end up explaining something you never meant "that way". Or, you totally meant it that way, but you were trusting that person to keep it to themselves and they didn't.

If you wouldn't want it printed in the worship bulletin for everyone to read, just skip it. Odds are, saying it out loud won't be helpful to anyone anyway. That goes for pretty much all categories - from joking about your husband's foibles, to sharing an opinion on someone's performance in church, to chatting about the decisions made in a recent church meeting.

Got a survival tip that someone shared with you, or that you learned along the way? Send it in and we'll share it: clutchtalk [at] gmail [dot] com.

Yeah, this is unfortunately true. Anything you say can and will be held against you. And guilty until proven innocent, which will never happen.
