Anne Lamott claims the two best prayers she knows: “Help me, help me, help me” and “I thank you, I thank you, I thank you” She has a friend whose morning prayer every day is “what,” and whose evening prayer is “Oh, well” Anne thinks Jesus is “Casper the friendly savior” and describes God as “a clever mother.”Despite – or because of – his irreverence, faith is naturally subject to Anne Lamott.Since the Operating and Bird in Bird Instructions, her fans have been waiting for her to write the book that explains how she came to the big heart, grateful, generous faith she so often alluded to in her two previous documentary worksThe people in Anne Lamott’s real life work are like beloved characters, in a favorite of the series for her readers, her friend Pammy, her son, Sam, and the many funny and wise people who attend her church are all familiarAnd Mercy Travels is a welcome return to the lives of these people, as well as an introduction to new companions Lamott treats with the same candor, insight and tendernessLamott’s faith is not a simple answer, which is part of what it is for believers and unbelievers.Against all odds, she came to believe in God and then, even more than by miracle, in herselfAs she says, “My coming to faith did not begin with a leap, but rather a series of staggering”At once robust, personal, affectionate, wise, and very funny, Voyager Miséricordes tells exuberant detail how Anne Lamott learned to make the light of faith shine, on the darkest part of ordinary life, to expose it surprising pockets of meaning and hope
