"Great Awakening 2007” is the headline of Cathleen Falsani’s two-page column in the July 6 Chicago Sun-Times. Falsani asks readers, “Have you ever had a spiritual experience? Would you like to?” and then responds by offering “suggestions” that “just might lead to a spiritual experience.”
Hold on to your spiritual seekers’ seat for Falsani’s recommendations for the summer months: see Morgan Freeman as “the grinning laid-back God of love and lessons” in the one-star-rated Evan Almighty, or Robin Williams as “a maniacal minister” in License to Wed. “What’s not to love?” asks Falsani. The answer, according to critics, is one-starred movies.
Or, says Falsani, read guitarist Brian “Head” Welch’s Save Me from Myself: How I Found God, QuitKorn [the rock group], Kicked Drugs, and Lived to Tell My Story—a title that shows that his self is only partially saved from himself.
