Blue Like Jazz

On Saturday, I bought ‘Blue Like Jazz’ by Don Miller. It’s subtitled ‘nonreligious thoughts on christian spirituality’.

It’s really, really good. I’m going to leave you with the Author’s Note – which is what the book opens with – to have a taste. Here you go.

I never liked jazz music, because jazz music doesn’t resolve. But I was outside the Bagdad Theatre in Portland one night when I saw a man playing the saxophone. I stood there for fifteen minutes, and he never opened his eyes.

After that I liked jazz music.

Sometimes you have to watch somebody love something before you can love it yourself. It is as if they are showing you the way.

I used to not like God because God didn’t resolve. But that was before any of this happened.
