Angry Conversations with God starring Susan Isaacs
The story begins when Susan hits 40 and finds herself loveless, jobless, and living over a garage. When a church friend tells her she needs to look at her relationship with God like it was a marriage, Susan decides to take God to marriage counseling. It's been an interesting relationship, that's for sure:
I was raised Lutheran: Bible-believing, Jesus-loving Lutheran. But as an adult I tried everything: Pentecostals, Presbyterians, Episcopalians, Rock 'n' Roll Slackers 4 Jesus, Actors for Yahweh. Then I said, "Screw it," and became a drunk and a slut. (Well, a Lutheran slutthere were only two guys). Then I got sober and into AA, where I could pick whatever God I wanted. But I didn't pick God; God picked me. I've known him as long as I could remember
In counseling Susan casts herself as the neglected wife and God as the deadbeat spouse, while skewering American Churchianity. But soon she must admit the god in her head is not the real one. Is she willing to love the real God, "for better or worse?"
