New Word

And when it’s time to speak our faith/We use a language no one can explain/That’s no longer good enough - Michael W. Smith, "Live the Life"

Today I was reading an online biography of a local celebrity, and I choked on, or stumbled over, or smacked head-on into an almost sure-fire indicator that the person is a Church person: the word "blessed." Now, it's not totally unheard of for an unchurched person to use that word, but I'd consider it almost a calling card for the churchified. I was telling someone about it, how cheesy it was to find "Christianese" in an online biography, and suddenly a new descriptive term for it came to mind: Christiancheeze. A new made-up word! I'm so excited... it's SPIKETASTIC!
