The church has a language problem.
No, it isn’t because pastors are swearing from the pulpit. The issue here is with words that lifelong Christians may understand, but many in the unchurched, dechurched or in-church-but-checked-out culture don’t.
Take for example a recent exchange on Twitter between Pope Francis and an atheist.
Pope Francis: Advent is a journey towards Bethlehem. May we let ourselves be drawn by the light of the God made man.
Atheist: Ummm…I read this like 5 times. What in the world does it mean?!?! #Religion is #awkward.
