speech bubbleThe other day I came across a press release that recommended 200 words councils shouldn’t use in trying to communicate their messages.

They included the following classics (suggested alternative in brackets):

  • Blue sky thinking (thinking up ideas)
  • Cross-fertilisation (spreading ideas)
  • Coterminosity (all singing from the same hymn)
  • Seedbed (idea)
  • Horizon scanning (Why use at all?)
  • Predictors of Beaconicity (Why use at all?)
  • Thinking outside of the box (Why use at all?)
  • Contestability (Why use at all?)

It got me thinking.  What will be the Christian equivalent words…?

And even though this should go without saying: it’s just for fun, guys!
