A Different View of God
Pastor Nadia Bolz-Weber on how she experienced a divine intervention that changed her view of God from being one she feared to one that symbolizes grace.
- I felt like the god that I was taught to fear was an angry, capricious bastard with a killer surveillance system who's basically constantly disappointed in me for being a human being. So there was just this point where I just went, that doesn't feel right to me. That's not the god that I think actually exists. And actually, in getting sober and having this experience of grace of my life where it felt like there was this divine intervention in my life that wasn't just me pulling myself up by my spiritual bootstraps-- it really did feel like I experienced grace. It gave me a completely different view of god.
