Every Friday or so, I try to define some of the words people use on this site. I came up with some, you came up with some. The whole things is pretty wordtackular.
Every post on this site.
This is when a person feels empowered by the anonymity the web offers and fires off a scathing comment against worship eagles and then instead of linking to their own blog or using their name posts the comment as anonymous. Not to be confused with people that genuinely and understandably don’t want loads of people knowing who they are. As always, contrary opinions are welcomed with open arms and hopefully minds on this site.
“Yeah, they apparently were really mad about the post on willow tree figures but I couldn’t continue the conversation because they were bravenonymous and didn’t leave their information.”

When you can’t remember if you already prayed before a meal because you ate appetizers and forgot. So you pray a second time and feel that maybe you already did pray, which is prayjevu.
“Whoa, prayjevu, didn’t we already pray before the hot fry parade of bacon appetizer got to our table?”
Tyler commented this on “The last night cry fest at camp.”
What happens on the last night of camp or a retreat when the minister lays down some heavy preaching and gets everyone to cry.
“I swore I wasn’t going to cry but then they played ‘I can only imagine’ over a photo montage of the week at camp and suddenly I was all sloppy agape.”
When a worship leader mixes singing and talking in a strange sort of potpourri. Often they will start the song out by talking and then without any warning whatsoever, slide right into singing. Example:
I thought he was going to tell a story about his dog running away and all the sudden he was singing ‘Our God is an Awesome God.’ It was some amazing talk singing.”
