“Henry says, 'I don't think writers are sacred, but words are. They deserve respect. If you get the right ones in the right order, you can nudge the world a little or make a poem which children will speak for you.'”
--Tom Stoppard, "The Real Thing"

Tricia’s Thoughts:

There’s a song I like called “26 Letters” by Ben Glover that really opened my eyes to the fact that with just those few letters we create words, stories, language. And with mere words lives and even nations cal be transformed. For example, when President Lincoln met Harriet Beecher Stowe he commented, “So this is the little lady that started the big war.” Her book “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” brought the plight of the Southern slaves to the awareness of a nation. So this is my prayer for myself and for you—that with God’s guidance we too can use simply letters and words to bring Him glory, changing hearts and touching lives.

Ideas are the stuff of love and of war. Language does its feeble best to express them, but as any tool, it can be used skillfully or misused abysmally. Christian writers bear the double burden of aligning their ideas to Truth, and expressing them brilliantly.
