"Letting Go of God" on Showtime

Julia Sweeney's "Letting Go of God" will be airing on Showtime, Showtime 2, and Showtime Showcase.

Here's the description:

Actress and comic Julia Sweeney chronicles her tumultuous journey of faith from lapsed Catholic recommitting to the church to Buddhist, New Age mystic, and finally atheist whose philosophical transformation upsets her family in this fascinating one-woman stage show that follows up her acclaimed "God Said, 'Ha!'"

Here's the schedule:

  • Dec 2, 10:45 AM (Showtime Showcase)
  • Dec 2, 9:35 PM (Showtime Showcase)
  • Dec 5, 1:30 PM (Showtime Showcase)
  • Dec 7, 8:00 PM (Showtime 2)
  • Dec 8, 5:30 PM (Showtime)

I haven't seen it yet (and I don't get Showtime), but I have heard the CD version (the audio of her one-woman show), and that is very good. It's interesting, funny, and poignant, and I highly recommend it.

Here's the trailer:

Letting go of God, and embracing the devil. What a way to go!! Doh!! Praying this woman learns what true Christianity is about because it doesn't sound like she ever know what she believed. :-(

I think "letting go fo God" is in a sense letting go of the need to follow something and realize that it is okay to "just be". We all take different journeys in this life but hopefully in her letting go she is able to find happiness in herself as opposed to looking for it elsewhere.

yes indeed that believing is rights of any man/woman, so she can choose what she up to do or what to believe

This makes me sick. I need a medicine for this.
