Misfit Disciples in an Orthodox World

Misfit Disciples in an Orthodox World
"You had better be a round peg in a square hole than a round peg in a round hole. The latter is in for life, while the first is only an indeterminate sentence." – Elbert Hubbard



Something or someone who 1) does not fit conventional norms 2) behaves in such a manner and holds different takes on life which sets them apart from everyone else.
Rianne: I feel so out of place in this world
Brad: why?
Rianne: because i view things differently
Brad: yeah - you're a misfit. now go away (this is how we often feel in church, isn't it?)

This site is about my journey to find dynamic faith amid static orthodoxy. Christian faith, for many people, is about putting God in a box; about having all the answers because this feels safe. But, in my experience, I've found that you can't 'define' God this way. God defies definition. Consequently, our experience with Him should be dynamic: ever changing, as we seek to grasp what it means to know Him and to be His disciple on a daily ongoing basis. In this experience, we often feel clumsy--like trying to fit square pegs into round holes. But, it's not always a bad thing not to 'fit." Being a 'misfit' is sometimes more desirable!
