A conversation with Ann Lemott

There’s an interesting interview with author Anne Lemott posted on RELEVANT’s website. In it she discusses her struggles with “Christian culture,” her battles with addiction and how faith influences her social activism. Definately worth checking out…

I was influenced more by Martin Luther King Jr. than by any theologian. King’s Christianity was about putting your money where your mouth is, putting your life on the line. You don’t deepen your relationship with Christ with books; you do it by showing up with other people who are taking care of the poorest, hungriest and most marginalized. If you want to find where Jesus is, you’ll find Him close to the poorest of the poor, the suffering, the terrorized people.
