Spiritual Lemons: Biblical Women, Irreverent Laughter and Righteous Ra
L Brakeman
Anger, envy, shame, possessiveness, powerlessness-qualities we'd just as soon do without! But there are gifts of the spirit to be found in these so-called lemons, Brakeman insists. By recreating the unsung of biblical women, Brakeman expands our understanding of their passions and our full range of emotions. Using the playful form of midrash, Brakeman brings these ancient women and their struggles to life: Sarah, "the snake," Mary, Jephthah's daughter, Susanna, the Syrophoenician Woman, Mary and Martha, and the Anointing Woman. Each of the eight chapters focuses on a particular emotion and includes a commentary, with suggestions for personal prayer and meditation, and guides for group rituals.
