Rebecca & Ken Aspinwall

I have spoken to Churches and Bible Classes where it is assumed that we have faith and religion in common. In reality, there is a great amount of diversity and to speak to an audience from their standpoint poses much difficulty.

A great man once said: If anyone has ears, let him hear. So, the responsibility for good communication does not lay entirely on the speaker. The audience has their own work to do in the process.

We all have different writing & posting styles, as you've no doubt noticed. I'd like to propose an exercise...


I'd like you to take one of your posts - here or elsewhere - and re-do it, in the way that you think the people here would be most receptive to. Note: Not the way you speak, but the way our audience hears (or reads)


As a guide, take how others post as a guide as to how they like to see information. For example, you've probably noticed that I use direct language and keep my paragraphs very short.


Also, note how people quote - or don't quote - posts they respond to. Take note of the general level of vocabulary, grammar and jargon.


Now, once you've done that... post the original, preceded by the rewrite - in one post.


Then answer these questions:

What did you learn from doing this? How might this change the way you communicate over the phone, on sales calls, in person?

So, is anyone game to try this?
