Language





The theme of this year's Youth Assembly is Identity. Each delegate was asked to bring along an object that said something about them. I shared some bubbles, explaining that I love to use bubbles in worship and, especially in prayer.
One of the young people enlightened me that, in Dundee, where this year's NYA is meeting, Bubbles is the name of a recreational drug.
A timely reminded that language evolves and we cannot assume that what we think we are saying is what our listeners will hear or understand.
I look forward to learning lots more from the amazing young people gathered here this weekend.
