“We preach either under the promise of baptism, ‘Come forth, be washed, and you shall be odd,’ or the mandate of baptism, ‘You are washed, you are ordained, you are odd’
-William Willimon Peculiar Speech
What does it mean to be odd? One thing it means to me is that I am bought by Jesus and I am not my own, I am washed of my sin and guilt, given a new life daily and called to proclaim the goodness of what Christ has done for me and you to everyone I meet.
But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light;
1 Peter 2:9
