Remember "telephone," the traditional kid's game often used by grade school teachers? The class sits in a circle. The teacher makes up a sentence-long gossip statement. The teacher then whispers the statement to the person sitting next to her and then that person whispers what he heard to the person next to him and so on. When the message reaches the last person, the teacher says the gossip out loud and compares the original statement with the end result.
This is used to demonstrate how messages get altered when passed from person to person. Communication theorists use the phrase "filtering and completing" to describe what happens during communication breakdowns. When the message is impeded by some sort of noise actual sounds or mental distractions , people may "complete" or substitute what they think the speaker may have said.

This is much different from debating issues and decision making according to a majority vote. This week's text affords the opportunity to explore corporate and individual participation in discerning the leading of the Holy Spirit.
