    Ironic that you should post this. I had been going down my RSS reader this morning, quickly scanning several posts in my “emerging/missional” list of blogs from around the internet, all long presentations of the author’s opinion on something abstract — knowledge, knowledge, knowledge. And I was thinking about how endless this string of long “my ideas” posts seems to be, in this corner of the blog world, and how little interest I really have in that kind of thing anymore.

    And then this one sentence post from deWaal comes up!
