So, now I’ve given you a clue that “hoaching” is a Scottish word, do you know what it means?
- To have a plentyful supply of
- To teem with
Isn’t funny how everyday we use words which we assume those around us understand. But do we as Christians use words to explain our beliefs and our faith, in a way non believers can understand?
I have no answer to this question for you, this is a question we must each answer based on our own experiences. Don’t be surprised if you find your answer is “no” because, personally I think that we as Christians, can often seem a different breed to non Christians because of the words/phases we use when talking about our our faith and the Bible.
So what do I mean by that? Well going back on my previous comments about how the way Christians talk may put non believers off finding out more, I think that sometimes the Salvation Army can be seen as an exclusive club, only accessible to those who wear their specific uniform.
Just a few thoughts today to get you all thinking at the start of another week!
I’d be interested to hear your views on what I’ve said today, so please comment on my blog.
