2. Sensitivity: Compassion and empathy towards an audience is important to gain the audience trust.

Characteristics of a Good Speaker (cont...)
4. Desire: A good speaker must care about what he is talking about or the piece he is performing! If the speaker does not care, why should the audience?
Check List to Help Conquer Fears of Public Speaking
The Nature of Communication
Three Steps:

1. Source encodes his or her meaning into a signal
(language, tone, body language, voice, etc)

2. The signal is transmitted to the receiver

3. the receiver decodes the message and attributes meaning to it?
Mediated vs. Non-Mediated Communication

Introduction to Effective Communication
Concepts to Ensure Communication is Taking Place
1. Context: No piece of communication can be truly appreciated apart from the context in which it occurs. (example: LgAYPD Humorous Interp Script)
Types of Non-Mediated Communication
1. Dyadic communication: (Dyad = two)
- all interviews or discussions between two people.
1. Pray (2 Timothy 1:7)
2. Know the room - familiar with surroundings
3. Know the audience
4. Know the material
5. Concentrate on the message
6. Visualize yourself performing your speech
7. Practice your delivery ahead of time
8. Do not apologize to your audience
9. Turn nervous energy into positive energy
10. Gain experience - Practice! Practice! Practice!
2. Man's relationship was broken by sin (felt naked and ashamed). - Genesis 3
3. The solution to the brokenness is that the original design be restored through Jesus, the new Adam
(see Romans 5:12-21; 1 Corinthians 15:20-28).

4. Through Christ, human beings can become the creatures God intended them to be!
Discussion Questions:
1. How has sin impacted your ability to communicate?
2. How would communication be better without the problem of sin?
Discussion Q - Why is it important that the signals are decoded correcty?
2. You are a source and receiver of messages
Speakers influence audiences as much as audiences influence speakers (teacher/student)

3. Listeners must decode the speaker's symbols the way the speaker intended!
a. once we understand, we can agree or disagree

b. Imagine yourself speaking from the audience's perspective
2. Non-mediated Communication: direct, immediate, face to face. Inter-personal - two parties in the same area at the same time.
"I had many things to write to you, but I am not willing to write them to you in pen and ink; but I hope to see you shortly, and we shall speak face to face" - 3 John 13-14.
2. Small group communication: (3-15 people)
- As the number increases, the chemistry becomes more complex. The discussion becomes more public and the distance between people increases.
3. Public Address: speaker - audience
Discussion Q's - List Advantages and
Disadvantages of the public address system.
3. Knowledge: Good speakers must know what they are talking about! No short cuts to hard work, research, and often ....
5. Skill: a skill is acquired and developed over time.
If you practice, you will improve!
Discussion Q - Which of these 5 characteristics do you feel are strengths for you? weaknesses?

Romans 5:12-21

1 Corinthians 15:20-28
20 But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. 21 For since death came through a man, the resurrection of the dead comes also through a man. 22 For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive. 23 But each in turn: Christ, the firstfruits; then, when he comes, those who belong to him. 24 Then the end will come, when he hands over the kingdom to God the Father after he has destroyed all dominion, authority and power. 25 For he must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet. 26 The last enemy to be destroyed is death. 27 For he “has put everything under his feet.”[a] Now when it says that “everything” has been put under him, it is clear that this does not include God himself, who put everything under Christ. 28 When he has done this, then the Son himself will be made subject to him who put everything under him, so that God may be all in all.
12 Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, and in this way death came to all people, because all sinned—

13 To be sure, sin was in the world before the law was given, but sin is not charged against anyone’s account where there is no law. 14 Nevertheless, death reigned from the time of Adam to the time of Moses, even over those who did not sin by breaking a command, as did Adam, who is a pattern of the one to come.

15 But the gift is not like the trespass. For if the many died by the trespass of the one man, how much more did God’s grace and the gift that came by the grace of the one man, Jesus Christ, overflow to the many! 16 Nor can the gift of God be compared with the result of one man’s sin: The judgment followed one sin and brought condemnation, but the gift followed many trespasses and brought justification. 17 For if, by the trespass of the one man, death reigned through that one man, how much more will those who receive God’s abundant provision of grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man, Jesus Christ!

18 Consequently, just as one trespass resulted in condemnation for all people, so also one righteous act resulted in justification and life for all people. 19 For just as through the disobedience of the one man the many were made sinners, so also through the obedience of the one man the many will be made righteous.

20 The law was brought in so that the trespass might increase. But where sin increased, grace increased all the more, 21 so that, just as sin reigned in death, so also grace might reign through righteousness to bring eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
