Welcome to So We Speak,
In 1 Thessalonians 2:4, Paul writes, "but just as we have been approved by God to be entrusted with the Gospel, so we speak, not to please man, but to please God, who tests our hearts." Our passion is that Christians today would have that same conviction; to speak in such a way that honors God and encourages others. In today's world, and in our culture especially, it is very difficult to be informed without being conformed. We want to change that. We want to give a voice to Christian conviction. At So We Speak, we seek to publish content that allows you to speak life into your community, to engage with what's going on around you, and to be informed without being conformed.
To get to know the site, take a look at our first things post!
