Have you ever thought about some of the stuff we say as Christians to one another that sound perfectly normal to us but to someone who isn’t around “church culture”  it can sound kind of strange? I have heard this referred to as “Christianese” and we can easily use language that means one thing to us, but sounds totally foreign to someone else.

For example, the other day in the office I made a reference to going to worship practice later in the evening and someone that overheard me said, “You have to practice worship? What does that look like?”

What are some of the things we say that would make no sense to the “world?” Have you ever had this experience?
