We all have a filter that we use to take in the world around us. That filter predicts how we prefer to be communicated with and how we communicate with others. We believe God created us each intentionally with our own filters that the diversity in each of us brings a more complete image of God’s image.
Read the statements below. Then rank them from 1-6 based on which one resonates most with your understanding of God.
From the beginning God sees chaos and out of it brings structure.
God knits together creation with intention and purpose.
God loves what is created has weaved a story of love into creation.
The depths and vastness of God’s love takes great effort to imagine.
Following this type of God is a hoot!
God has a spirit of adventure and challenges us to action!
The six statements above target based on the six core personality filters within the Process Communication Model. They are not in competition with each other. Instead, they together give a fuller picture of God’s image. When you read the statements it is possible that some felt highlighted, more accurate, or more important. While all six types live in everyone, we each have some that are more energized and one that helps us to filter everything we do.
When we are able to communicate with others using their preferred perception and communication style we honor who God created them to be and affirm that we can “hear” them.
