Goodbye Jesus

Practical Spiritualism From Anne Lamott


Recommended Posts

I've been reading author Anne Lamott's area on Facebook. Her posts are very practical lessons in not being part of the rat-race, on simple acts of kindness to self and others, and avoidance of pseudo-spiritual bumper sticker sayings. I like her approach to life, and her practical advice to graduates.


A couple of quotes and links to her section (you have to be logged into Facebook to read the posts):




"You do what you can, what good people have always done: You bring thirsty people water; you share your food, you try to help the homeless find shelter, you stand up for the underdog."



Her view of the practical Jesus: "It's very hard here. Have you eaten? Look--you all stick together, go to the beach and have some fish. Share what you have. We'll talk later."

FYI: Spiritualism refers to the use of mediums to contact the dead. Did you mean spirituality?

Yes, I was in a hurry typing and had a brain fart.

"Humanism" might be appropriate also.

I liked it. Good messages for the day without any preaching. I like the article on dieting. Worth the read. I just clicked 'like'.


One of her followers said, '' "religion is for people trying to stay out of hell; spirituality is for those in hell trying to get out." 


I love positive messages on facebook. Too much negative stuff for me isn't good. Thanks Fuego!!
