When people find out I’m a pastor, they instantly think they need to “clean up” their language. They’ll apologize profusely if they happen to utter a four-letter word in my presence. I find that surprising--of all things, wearing a collar does not make me the speech police. I’ll often tell people I’m much more offended that kids will go to bed hungry tonight than hearing you drop the f-bomb. Clearly, it has become more and more socially acceptable to use swear words in everyday conversation in almost all settings. Why is swearing still seen as a bad thing in the realm of religion? Well, our guest today has journeyed with speaking habits that she sometimes wrestled with changing. She’s got an amazing life story, and will weave both together in an episode we’re calling: “I Swear.”
