Discourse can be most difficult, even for those who have the same native
language. For Christians, it sometimes get even tougher because no
matter how well we may have a command of whatever language we speak,
often what we want to convey isn't exactly conveyed in text. I think
this is, in part anyway, because it's impossible to apply inflections to
typed words where you can to spoken words. Of course there's also body
language that is a factor in a face to face interaction.

So, we all have to deal with the "written word" carefully, making our
best effort to convey exactly what we mean to say, as best as we can
express it. Some of us are more emotional that others. I'm not one of
those. It doesn't mean I don't share the same experience as someone
else, it means it's more "mental" or intellectual than another. One
isn't "better" than the other, it's just a different response. But, it
IS these differences in all of us that makes the list beneficial for all
of us.
