Accidental Saints Finding God in All the Wrong PeopleWhere along the lines I wanted to sing in a choir again So I started coming back to And somewhere along the lines I ealized I could say the WORDS OF THE CREED SING of the Apostles Creed sing hymns and say the Lord s Prayer and it didn t matter one bit whether I believed it or not It was about doing things that helped me be a better personAnd then I got breast cancer and had to go through chemo and yadda yadda yadda I couldn t be a strong independent person any and had to accept help And somewhere along the lines of accepting help of being weak and needing others I found friendship I found a church communityBut my terrible secret emained I m not sure the God in the ELCA liturgy is the god I believe I mean I certainly don t think 1000s of years of Japanese people are condemned to a fiery pits of hell because Jesus happened to live in the Middle East A God of love would not work that way And that s the long way of saying Nadia Bolz Weber s book speaks strongly to me She writes about her failures as a Person And As A PASTOR and as a PASTOR love the people around her the very people who show here the most grace when she commits to speaking in Australia instead of officiating at good friends weddings or avoids a parishioner with halitosis and boring stories And she verbalizes the twin sides of the blessing and neediness issue that have been a thorn in my mental side since the first time I did volunteer work in high school If you go out to do mission and give service it s so very easy to fall into a mental trap Here she explains it better than meWhile we as people of God are called to feed the hungry and clothe the naked the whole we e blessed to be a blessing thing can still be kind of dangerous It can be dangerous when we self importantly place ourselves above the world waiting to descend on those below so we can be a blessing they ve been waiting for like it or not Plus seeing myself as the blessing can pretty easily obscure the way in which I am actually part of the problem and can hide the ways in which I too am poor and needing careHow do we go about doing service without making a distinction between those who are Confidentiel défense receiving and those giving I think part of the answer lies in stop giving into the sin of pride about being strong or independent or being a go getter or organizational maven. He least likely of people a church loving agnostic a drag ueen a felonious Bishop and a gun toting member of the NRA As she lives and worships alongside these “ac­cidental saints” Nadia is swept into first hand en­counters with grace a gift that feels to her less like being wrapped in a warm blanket and like being hit with a blunt instrument But by this grace people are trans­formed in ways they couldn’t have been on their own In a time when many haveightly become dis­il. I freakin love Nadia Bolz Weber She eleased the incredible Pastrix just two years ago and she s gathered enough stories since then to have a brand new inspiring challenging funny book about God and people that made me cry on at least three occasions This book is structured over the course of a liturgical year beginning and ending at All Saints Day though she draws on stories from multiple years My takeaway from this book is that "I don t need to try harder to be a good Christianperson I need to work harder to internalize grace mercy " don t need to try harder to be a good Christianperson I need to work harder to internalize grace mercy love and then God will be able to use me in the lives of others From Muslim to Christian Granada: Inventing a City's Past in Early Modern Spain regardless of what I myself try to do I can practically hear her saying I know that doesn t make sense but that s how God works And then she has six stories to illuminate her thoughts She challenges those who think they can find God and live faith without being in community with other people Heraw honesty complete with appropriately placed curse words is like balm on the soul of a Christian who wants to follow Jesus example but can t figure out how to apply typical Christian platitudes to Bright Montana Sky real life I decommend it for basically everybody Very Pancreatic Cancer: A Patient and His Doctor Balance Hope and Truth readable and extremelyelatable If you ve been around the block a few times or are a woman with a past you will find peace and a judgment free place to land While her liberal use of cursing was very unusual it did not bother me as I can be a bit of a potty mouth myself when having a hissy fit over something unfair or cruelI was going to give it 45 stars but I bumped it up to 5 when I ead her last chapter On Her New BeatitudesBlessed Are Those Are Not Over It her new BeatitudesBlessed are those are not over it are the losers in a world that only loves winnerSpoke to me spoke to my pastKudos So here s the thing I grew up in the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America was baptized confirmed and then went to high school and found nothing in the liturgy or the service to make me stay in the churchAnd then I went to live in Japan and had to wrestle with a WHOLE COUNTRY of folks with a 1000 year old history that has absolutely nothing to do with Jesus So I stopped believing the church or Christianity had anything to do with me I m a flaming liberal and a eligion that makes outsiders of people is not for me I wanted Abu Telfan: Or, the Return from the Mountains of the Moon, Tr. by S.
