Words can be either life or death. That was the discussion at last week’s “Blessed Unity of God” (BUG), which was hosted in the Meditation Chapel, Sept. 25 by Shena Shepherd, academic coordinator for the ACE Program. Shepherd was also the guest speaker for the night and spoke about how people are not perfect and how words can have a bigger impact then people can imagine. Students opened up about their own experiences which included both their glory and their shame.
“Negativity and positivity are both attractive, and it’s something we don’t think about. We don’t consider our words hurting others or how greatly they harm us and the recovery following. Shena’s message was very much needed, and it resonated strongly with me,” Cortney Brooke Dixon, senior, said.
