Craig Groeschel Is Weird

Craig Groeschel is my pastor and my friend so I can call him weird. And he’s fine with it. In fact, he’s so okay with it, that he wrote a book about it. Weird The point of Craig’s latest book, Weird, is to challenge us to do things differently than status quo. Craig writes:
Normal people are stressed, overwhelmed, and exhausted. Many of their relationships are, at best, strained and, in most cases, just surviving. In our oversexed world, lust, premarital sex, guilt and shame are far more common than purity, virginity, and a healthy married sex life. And when it comes to God, the majority believe in Him, but the teachings of Scripture rarely make it into their everyday lives. Simply put, normal isn’t working.
As I’m reading through his book, I am realizing that I’m not nearly as weird as I’d like to be. If I’m being honest, sometimes I just look like the average person doing the typical things that normal people do. I wonder what people think of me way more than I should. I’m am uncomfortable with how easily I seem to blend in with the crowd. Because the crowd is a bit jacked up, y’all. (I’m not even bothered if you judge me for saying jacked up.) (Okay, so maybe I’m wondering what you think a little.) It’s time for a change.¬†Join me and read Craig’s book. Let’s get weird together.

  1. I have the book but haven’t started reading yet – but am praying for “God Weird” for me and my family every single day. Love it!!!

  2. Love Craig Groeschel! We just had the privelege of hearing him speak down here in Aussie at the Colour Women’s conference! It was awesome. On my list of books to read! I need to be more WEIRD too!! xx

  3. I think you got “jacked up” from your time with the Everetts:) We are definitely the weird ones on our block. I know it will always be a battle to be content with being different especially as the kids get older and want to be cool. Thats why it feels so good to be with all the other weirdos when the church gathers together.

  4. Oh please. Y’all have no idea what “weird” is. Write all the books you want. Sorry Cindy, I know you didn’t write it. I like the title, and the blue rubber wristbands. I didn’t have the money on me when I showed up at the first service. So I asked them to give it to me for free. Talk about weird. Of course, I paid for it the next day. I’m not THAT weird. But the looks I got, when I asked for it for free,,, Y’all aren’t ready for weird. Now drink the koolaid and behave. (grin)
