A Love of Language or a Language of Love

We Unitarian Universalists have come to be known as the people of the words.  How many of us have spent hours in passionate discussion seeking the perfect way to word a resolution or mission statement or bylaw amendment?  Yes, we love our words.  But words also have the power to harm, to disenfranchise.  Can we move from a love of language to a language of love?
