We all fight for normalcy—or whatever
we believe that is. We seek it. We long for it. But we often can’t define it.
In Me, Jesus, a Beer, and a Cigar, Dickinson indicates that we may not
be asking the right questions or even thinking the correct thoughts. Perhaps
abnormal is a better direction—depending again on how one defines it.
With a backdrop of a pandemic, the
George Floyd murder, and an incredibly divisive political climate, Dickinson
shares thoughts for everyday living that are designed to shake the normalcy of
Christians, non-Christians and fence-sitters. 
The thoughts present situations often
in a starkly different way than many choose to view life, not to mention how
they view their own faith and Christianity: Why taking a knee during the
national anthem to say a prayer may honor the flag and not desecrate it; how a young
man growing up in the projects falls into a scenario that forces a conservative
White family to question the taboo of abortion; and how reaching out to a
family in need at Christmas may not be the perfect answer for joyful giving.
Sit back. Prepare for the abnormal.
Prepare to be uncomfortable.
