Wordies

Wordies present graphic pictures of written and/or spoken word. They can bring a person up short if it appears we're focusing less on what we intend in our communication. It's also intriguing to see what are the most prevalent words (and ideas) in public speeches.

Here's a Wordie for my sermon of last Sunday:

Kathy Gill presented Wordies of the recent speeches by former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin and President Barack Obama regarding the tragic events of last Saturday in Tucson. I had forgotten all about Wordies until I saw her post.

Go to the Wordies site and subject emails, songs, articles, or speeches to the Wordies treatment. It's enlightening.
