The phrase "I'm spiritual but not religious" has become a cliche. How are open-minded "religious people" supposed to react to this hazy--and often lazy--statement of faith? Lillian Daniel responds by telling stories of people looking for God in the midst of everyday life, affirming that religion can be weird, wonderful--and well worth trying. While so-called spiritual life keeps people self-focused and vague, religious people have something that "spiritual" people do not: centuries of careful religious thought, ongoing meaningful debate, and, most important, a supportive community that challenges and strengthens their faith. Humorous and sincere, this is a book about people finding God in the most unexpected, unspiritual places: prisons, airports, yoga classes, committee meetings, and strangest of all, right there in their local church.Publishers Description
The phrase "I'm spiritual but not religious" has become a cliche. It's easy to find God amid the convenience of self-styled spirituality--but is it possible (and more worthwhile) to search for God through religion?
Minister and celebrated author Lillian Daniel gives a new spin on church with stories of what a life of faith can really be: weird, wondrous, and well worth trying. From a rock-and-roller sexton to a BB gun-toting grandma, a church service attended by animals to a group of unlikely theologians at Sing Sing, Daniel shows us a portrait of church that is flawed, fallible--and deeply faithful. With poignant reflections and sly wit, Daniel invites all of us to step out of ourselves, dare to become a community, and encounter a God greater than we could ever invent.
Humorous and sincere, this is a book about people finding God in the most unexpected of places: prisons, airports, yoga classes, committee meetings, and, strangest of all, right there in church. "
