Teaser Tuesdays – Grounded (Feb 2)

teasertuesdays2014eTeaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Here are my teasers for this week:

groundedMany people have left organized religion because they experience too great a distance between the old structures and their experience of God. Yet there are surprising moments when the revolution actually makes it into the church – a courageous sermon that turns things upside down, an old hymn tune with earthy new words, a poem that rivals the beauty of scripture, a call to plant a garden or march for justice.

From page 24 of Grounded: Finding God in the World—A Spiritual Revolution by Diana Butler Bass
