In a highly divided culture, one faith leader is reminding people of three key words and phrases that we need to use and embrace more than ever today, he told Fox News Digital. “I think it’s time for a refresher course” in civility, said Mark Batteron, author of the new book, “Please Sorry Thanks: The Three Words That Change Everything” (Multnomah). “I dedicated the book to my mom and dad, which is special for me — they’re the ones who taught me three magic words for living. You’ve got to be good at ‘please,’ ‘sorry’ and ‘thanks,’” he said in a phone interview with Fox News Digital. These can’t just be empty words, though, stressed the lead pastor of National Community Church in Washington, D.C. …  Batterson said, “We need a rising tide of ‘please,’ ‘sorry,’ and ‘thanks’ — which really means we need a rising tide of civility in today’s culture.”
