God Plays a Purple Banjo

“Our faith benefits so much when we see a lifetime of love sitting side-by-side in an endless moment unfettered by a culture addicted to transition. Who needs a retirement condo in Florida if you know the warmth of Christ in the person sitting next to you in Viroqua’s Main Street Café?” - FROM GOD PLAYS A PURPLE BANJO

This refreshing, delightfully written, and deeply personal book provides the answer to the age-old question, “Where is God?” Everywhere, says S. James Meyer—homeless advocate, business owner, permanent deacon, husband, father, and son of a carpenter. Each of the stories here uses the stuff of everyday life to remind us that every breath we take is an encounter with God, and that there is no moment in our lives that is not sacred. Whether talking about a hike with his son, a cherished family traditional recipe, his father’s work, or the Eucharist, Meyer makes it clear that all of life is a deeply holy adventure, one to be embraced in all its human frailty—a frailty that only brings us closer to God.
