New York Times Bestsellers, Accidental Saints and Pastrix by Nadia Bolz-Weber are refreshingly honest books for anyone who can’t stand pious religious talk. In her brutally honest book about pastoring, she doesn’t just admit her past, she admits her present; the real petty, self-righteous, unloving stuff that most of us try to hide.
And I especially love her willingness to admit she needs forgiveness for being an a**hole;
“‘God please help me not be an asshole’ is about as common a prayer as I pray in my life.”
Good for those of us who have trouble with church but miss community.
