Topic: “Keep it Shut!” (Karen Ehman)

We will learn:

• The difference between gossip and properly processing with a trusted friend

• A helpful grid for using our digital tongues as we talk online or on social media
• How to pause before you pounce, attacking the problem but not the person
• How to avoid saying something permanently painful just because you are temporarily ticked off
• What the Bible teaches about making our speech laced with grace, as sweet as honey, and yet seasoned with salt
