What To Do When You Are "Odd"

Todd Rhoades looks at the fact that most pastors are not at all like their congregants. Deep truth, cute idea, but I think he is understating things. Pastors are oddballs, there is something very different to choose that way of life. This can be a huge problem for the church.  But it also strikes me that Christ must have been quite the weirdo. I am not a all sure he would give off that "just a normal guy" vibe."

So I think it a legitimate question to ask how it is that oddballs and weirdos can be expected to attract people to church and the gospel.

I don't have all the answers there, but this I can say with certainty. The kind of attractiveness necessary is not based in current culture, or the latest fad. The kind of attractiveness necessary is of a much deeper nature. And that means that leaders in the church have to work extraordinarily hard to cultivate those deeper things.

No easy task that.
