I keep coming back to this phrase these days… misfits.
In so many ways God keeps leading me back to it. Through conversations with friends, via blog posts, and so on. During Scott’s and Dan’s recent trip to Thailand, they visited NewSong Bangkok. Scott writes:
I came to find out that their main focus is in connecting with what they refer to as “misfits” – or the “third culture” – which, according to their website, “describes a person who can move in and out of different cultures, and build relationships with people who are different from them.”
I love this description. I really believe God has given me some form of gifting in terms of relationships and networking. Right now I’m not sure how to use that, but I love NewSongs description of the misfits… I want to be that kind of person.
On NewSongs website they describe their dream of “creating community for misfits“…
Our dream is to create sanctuaries for people who feel marginalized, left out, beaten down, and voiceless to find real relationships.
This resonates with me so much right now. Maybe it will become my dream.
