Ep 98: Gossip In The Church, The Power Of Our Words and Choosing Encouragement Over Speculation with Bianca Juarez Olthoff
Have you ever been hurt by someone gossiping about you? Are you guilty of talking about someone behind their back? Gossip is running rampant in today's world, both online and in person and we're going to tackle it in this episode. In this episode, I will: 

* Define gossip and different types of gossipers 

* Explain why we shouldn't gossip, from a biblical perspective 

* Why people may feel the need to gossip 

* How we can actively fight against gossip culture Gossip has become a part of everyday life, whether defined as a water cooler moment with colleagues in the office or chatting about someone else's business with friends. 

It can also be found online when scrolling through tabloids and social media. While it might seem innocent, it can be hurtful, lead to wild assumptions and cause division in relationships. I'll explain what gossip is and the damage it can cause. I'll also cover what the Bible says about gossip as well as how gossip is showing up in the [capital C] Church. My heart and my hope is that as you listen, you'll reflect on this topic and have the courage to call out gossip when you see it in real time. Let's instead be generous with encouragement, it goes much further and will have a positive impact on someone's life. You can tag me @biancaolthoff, I'd love to know how this episode spoke to you! 

Love you,
B
