Rev. Wright summarizes her memoir: “Cheap wine, dirty feet, and a fire-breathing Baptist preacher were the Trinity that set me on a spiritual odyssey, where I experienced bigamy, divorce, and the death of two infant children before emerging from the wasteland to pastor a progressive church. After wrestling with angels, doubts, and demons for half a century, I finally cried “uncle” and discovered the serenity and joy that come with faith. Circling: A Spiritual Odyssey is the 65,000-word travelogue of that
In the quest to discern hidden faults or divine purpose underlying apparent tragedy, the author learned that the road to peace requires two ingredients: the unseen hand of God and a good sense of humor. One of the “evangelists” is a smart-alecky bird named Goober; as half phoenix and half heron, he cavorts between the natural and imaginary worlds. It is currently being shared with beta-readers and should be available commercially in late 2018 or early 2019.
Although written by a Christian, the book will appeal to believers in other faiths and be a guide for all who lack the courage or bounce to take a full “leap of faith.” The book was written in hopes that readers will cry and laugh, and come away sanctified.
