I have chubby knees, it’s true. I’m a generally slender person but there are few areas that betray me. I’m also generally self confident but chubby knees? Seriously, how can I be confident about chubby knees?! But the reality is, I need my knees (enter rim shot here). Chubby or not, they are mine and there [...] Related posts:

I was listening to Donald Miller on the Relevant podcast last week and there was one comment that struck me more than the others and it was a part where he differentiated between “types” of fundamentalism. He talked about how, in many ways, we are all fundamentalists (*gasp* say it aint so!) Basically, he was [...] Related posts:

A.K.A subversionary (a subversive revolutionary) language This is good stuff on deconstruction from Tony Jones, shared at the church and postmodern culture.
