Recently, I wrote an article for my Examiner column, “How Do the Scriptures Spell Communication?” where I shared several scriptures that began with the letters of the word communication. It was an enlightening look at some of the most important lessons on communication that the Bible teaches.
It occurred to me that I could do the same thing with the various communication quotes by mere humans including myself. So this week, I set out to find both JoJoisms and other communication quotes that fit the bill. Today I’m going to share with you how I spell communication. On Wednesday, I’ll share some other quotes that hold great lessons for us.
You may notice that some of these are new. I am afraid I have been remiss in creating JoJoisms that started with O,U, C and N so I had to write them especially for this article. In fact, I decided to create them all as Visual JoJoisms as well so I’d have something for you to look at while reading.
