“Praise God," he whispered. “He kept you safe. You had your other accident to stop you from that."

My heart flared up in my chest, and for a moment I felt myself leaping back into the world of magical thinking, the universe as a series of divine interventions. There but for the grace of God. Maybe God was protecting me after all. Perhaps I had been spared. But if God had maneuvered events in such a way that my previous accident had kept me alive, why didn't he do as much for those who had died?”

“When I was a girl experiencing it for the first time, that rollicking religion seemed to have come organically, from the world itself, like water or air. Pentecostals aren't much for history, and the only origin story I'd ever heard was the story of how the Holy Spirit had descended on Jesus's disciples centuries ago when they gathered to mourn his death.”

“Mrs. Afolabi adre me if I was a Christian. I knew what she was asking: Are you a good person? Can I trust you? I hedged and then answered yes, ignoring the unsettled feeling that rose up in me when I said those words. The typical Christian testimony was one of being lost, then found. But my own testimony ran backward. I had been found once, but somewhere along the way I had gotten lost.”
