During an extended worship time Friday morning, Mr. Garren Carter school counselor shared with students and staff how Jesus communicates. Mr. Carter shared that 7% of what is communicated is done through words. Tone and volume of voice and well as non-verbal gestures make up the other 93% of how people communicate. He focused on the communication skills of both the rich young ruler and Jesus. To further illustrate Michael Jr’s be the punchline video was shown. Both with the biblical story and the video Mr. Carter challenged everyone to acknowledge the resources and gifts of God to us and look for ways to help others with them.
His presentation was part of a week long focus this week at school on communication. This is one of the 7Cs the school family considers a core values. Earlier this week in chapel Mrs. Hardin shared worships on the power of kind words and the characteristics of self-talk. In class Chaplin Jamieson used the bible and videos to illustrate how communication happens.
