Grace (Eventually) (Non-fiction)
Anne Lamott has changed the way that I look at my own spirituality. Before I thought of a spiritual person as being a kind of “goody goody” or perhaps somewhat mystical, different from the common herd. In Grace (Eventually), Lamott recounts stories from her life that show an earthy, sometimes almost irreverent, side to spirituality. She is wonderfully witty and decidedly liberal. She looks at the spiritual life with honesty, giving the reader permission to both be spiritual and also be lovingly flawed. Since I finished reading Grace (Eventually) a few weeks ago, I have found myself looking at my relationship with The Divine in a new way.
