The tongue is an unruly part of our anatomy, which the Bible admonishes us to control. This seminar will explore the anatomy of gossip. What is it? Why do people in every culture do it? What are the effects of gossip on a family, a community, and an organization -- even this church? Are there benefits to gossip? How do our modern technologies and social media drive or affect gossip? Come to the presentation to explore the topic and to distinguish this special form of communication from other more positive forms. The topic is a worthy one to investigate and reflect upon.
