Overview

God Is Not a Bully: A Not-So-Churchy Memoir, addresses bullying in the spiritual realm like no book has before. Against the backdrop of growing up as a one-day stage performer, musician and educator, is the author's experience of identifying and overcoming various bullies, whether they be individuals or institutions, and the consequential acceptance of a broader spirituality. The memoir encompasses the innocence and curiosity we all have about who we are, why the world is, our part in it-an innocence that gets slowly eaten away by people and institutions who tell us we are less than we should be-and how we can learn to return to that innocence as an adult. From Southern Baptist Christianity to liturgical Episcopalianism, Celtic spirituality to Shamanic ritual, the author playfully hitchhikes through the worlds of family, institution, and self in search of a deeper calling from the Divine.
