A Power Greater Than Me
Pastor Nadia Bolz-Weber talks about how belief in a greater power can take the pressure off yourself.
- That theological non-specificity in the 12 steps is genius, because it's just a power greater than yourself. If the only faith that somebody has is that there's some kind of power that's greater than them, that's literally enough faith to me. That's being a person of faith. It doesn't have to be more noble than that. To me, it's a blessed relief to think that there's something more powerful than me. It takes the pressure off in some way.
