Speaking to a group is not a diplomatic process. It is largely a one-way pipeline of information and emotion. The most popular and impact-filled presenters follow the advice of my good friend (and phenomenal pastor/communicator) Justin Beadles' dad to his son regarding speaking...
"Justin, when you present in front of a group, unload both guns on 'em and then throw the gun!"
Be bold. Be grace-filled, but be bold. Leave it all on the table.
