What if we reframed being 'weird' as a symbol of divine distinction? Get ready to challenge societal norms and embrace your unique imprint of God's image as we delve into a faith-based exploration of diversity and individuality. Drawing inspiration from Taylor Swift's powerful lyrics and her mesmerizing performance at the Eras tour, we revel in the beauty of God's creation, celebrating how our differences enrich the world with a mosaic of God's glory. As we embark on the new year, we invite you to shine brightly as a beacon of divine love in your community, embracing the distinctive color you add to God's diverse canvas.

How does walking with Jesus transform us in a way that we stand out, a little 'weird', in the world? Our faith should reshape our values, priorities and relationships - daring us to challenge societal norms. With an intriguing glance at the church's historic alliance with the state, we discuss the recent drift towards societal irrelevance. But let's not view this shift as a loss. Instead, we see it as a golden opportunity for the church to reassess its beliefs and stand firm against societal pressure to conform. So, come and embrace the weird with us, let your faith be the light that guides your path. We look forward to embarking on this thought-provoking journey with you.
