>The other night during our marrieds community group Nate gave the every-familiar instructions of, “pray as you feel led” and had to stop to comment on the awkwardness of saying and hearing what has become such a trite sounding phrase in Christian circles. We then detoured into a brief tangent on other overly used phrases by our generation in the church circle here in southern California.
Here’s what we came up with:
– “Pray as you feel led.”
– Wanting things to be “organic” (Not as in food, but as in meeting people or beginning new ministries). Our friend Katherine called a spade a spade and revealed that this is usually just code for unorganized.
– “living in the tension” between two things in life you’re trying to balance or figure out.
Are there any Christian catch phrases that make you wish you had a dime for every time you hear it?
