Living Faith synopsis
Researchers have made urban mothersliving in poverty the focus of their research for decades. The lives of these women can be difficult to find while they are looking for housing, decent jobs and their struggle to care for their children while they remain in the luxury or work in low-paying jobs and sometimes have physical or mental health problems.
But so far, little attention has been paid to an important force in the lives of these women: religion. Based on in-depth interviews with women and pastors, Susan Crawford Sullivan presents the views of poor mothers who are often ignored. It should be noted that most women recruited from a variety of social service programs do not attend religious services because of logistical challenges or because they feel stigmatized and unwanted in the church.
However, they find that religious faith often plays a strong role in their lives as they deal with it and try to understand the challenges they face. And prove that supportive religious gatherings are important for women who participate, but understanding daily religion requires exploring beyond formal religious organizations.
Provides a sophisticated analysis of how to stimulate faith and stimulate the work of poor mothers. Sometimes, the book "Life in Faith" reveals the ways in which it works as a lens that many people see and interpret.
