He Said, She Heard

From Preaching Today

Every preacher knows that sometimes what we say (or at least what we thought we said) isn't what our people hear. In this preaching skills article, Jeffrey Arthurs explores some of the general differences between how men and women communicate—and how those principles apply to your preaching. As Arthurs cautions, "Preaching is more than a report of what you discovered in the study; it is also a means of establishing and nurturing relationships." And at least half of those relationships in our preaching will be with members of the opposite sex. So don't get caught in the trap of "He said, she heard" or "She said, he heard."
