So… We’ve been talking a lot about weirdness. In some ways it’s to get you excited to come to Wine, Words, and Weirdness on February 10th. We have no shame in admitting that! But also because at Uncommon [good], weirdness is one of our unspoken values.
Aside from everyone on our team being a little weird, what we are doing is inherently weird [or, ya know, uncommon]… Having parties at parks to build community… talking about faith at wineries and breweries… all pretty weird indeed. In fact, we get told that pretty often. But we don’t mind. Because in order to do great things, you just might have to be a little bit weird.
And that’s why we are excited to have CJ Casciotta come talk with us. He’s all about weirdness. Because he believes weirdness changes things. Weirdness starts movements. And your weirdness is needed in the world. Each of us has been given unique qualities that make us who we are. CJ calls it the Sacred Weird. Now, if the word weird doesn’t do it for you, just think of it as the driving force that helps you bring your unique goodness to the world.
But enough from us… Let’s hear what CJ has to say about it…
“We need weirdness to keep the world moving, to help solve it’s problems, to change our minds and rattle our hearts. More specifically, we need your weirdness. Whether you’re an artist, a teacher, a data processor, an engineer, or a mom, we need you to access and illuminate the [Sacred Weird] that rests deep within the corners of your soul–the ideas and passions you can’t shake, the solutions you see that nobody else does, the one-of-a-kind history that only you carry, complete with all its crooked roads, cracks, and smudges.”
THIS is why we’re so stoked to help you find your Sacred Weird. Because it has something to offer the world!
Obviously, we’d love for you to join us on February 10th. But whether you do or not, you’ve got to check out CJ’s book, Get Weird.
And enjoy this last little nugget to get you even more excited…
“When we abandon our weirdness, when we believe the lie that it’s better to fit in than to stick out, we get further and further away from “on earth as it is in heaven”… But when we bravely decide to embrace our own weirdness, it lets others know they belong just as they are too…”
If that doesn’t get you excited, well, you’re [not] weird. 😉

New Podcast Episode!
In the weirdness of a 5 week month, we felt like it had been way too long since our last episode. So here’s a little bonus episode at a kitchen table instead of in a treehouse. It’s weird and wonderful and you can find it on Apple, Google, Spotify, and probably other places too… Just search for “uncommon cast”.
