A Much-Needed Spiritual Perspective
Every so often, I read a book that offers a spiritual perspective that is so unique it is striking. I had that experience as I pondered Fat Luther, Slim Pickin's: A Black Catholic Celebration of Faith, Tradition, and Diversity.
The tone is conversational and engaging. Authors Marcia Lane-McGee and Shannon Wimp Schmidt offer inspiration and encouragement as they describe their experiences as people of color in the Catholic Church. The authors have created a work that is both inviting and challenging and is a thorough delight to read and relish.
This book is a much-needed resource to promote inclusivity and engagement within the Church. In short, it is an important, insightful book for a time such as this.
