On spiritual language
Jonas Ellison

Jonas, I find it refreshing, and more real using that language. I was a teacher, and now you cannot even say the work Christmas in many school, and when kids ask questions (a normal part of growing up) you have to deflect them, and basically ignore anything even remotely spiritual. People don’t talk that way on a day-to-day basis, censoring every word or thought before speaking. Today’s pop music is a good example of how it sometimes just comes up in conversation. Bruno Mars 24K song references Jesus, and Lady Gaga’s Million Reasons talks about getting on your knees and praying. Don’t add spiritual language just to look “good” or to appear smart, but if it is genuine, and makes sense in the context of the conversation I say “heck yeah” add it!
