Christianity and communications
It's easy to see how strong communication skills can readily be applied in the workplace, but what about in Christianity? The historic Christian church is filled with icons, symbols, music, and artwork that can be better appreciated by understanding the communication techniques that lie beneath their brush strokes or music notes.
Of course, communication is essential to participation in a church. Whether you're planning a worship service, serving in church leadership, or explaining your faith to someone else-- being able to clearly communicate your thoughts is an invaluable skill.
