    How did Christians greet or encourage each other before everyone started saying, “It is well”?

    Hello Dayo, great to have you here!

    You just expressed my concern–I feel the saying’s become trite. Let me rephrase my question then: What other ways can I encourage anyone if I don’t want to say “It is well”?

    Hello, Wumi,

    I also wonder!

    The greeting has become so widespread that you are almost considered a non-believer if you don’t use it. I think the statement itself is sound – as an expression of faith in God’s providential control over our lives’ details. However, like other good fads, when it becomes a religious fad it loses meaning.
