As a kid, I gravitated toward dweebs and troublemakers. How funny that now, in the church of all places, I’m blessed by the company of both. As a Christian, I’m here for the weirdos, the outcasts, the sloppily reformed, and the still-pretty-broken. To affirm that we outsiders have a place to belong. We are loved. And through Christ we are redeemed, our slate wiped clean.
