The Reverend Kate Bottley will be at Lincoln Museum on Thursday 21st September at 7pm where she will be in conversation about her new book ‘Have a Little Faith: The Life Lessons on Love, Death and How Lasagne Always Helps’.
“After doctors and therapists (beauty and the other sort), vicars are afforded more insight into people’s private lives than most other jobs.”
An uplifting part-memoir, part-guide from the UK’s most popular vicar on how her modern view of faith can help us live a more fulfilled life.
In her first book, the nation’s favourite vicar Kate Bottley reveals the surprising truth about what faith means to her and how, ultimately, it is the key to happiness. As a vicar she is often greeted with the phrase “I’m not religious, but… I love that hymn”, or “… I want a church wedding”, but the truth is having faith isn’t an all-or-nothing situation and we all deserve to enjoy the parts that bring us comfort.
Kate is not your average vicar, in fact, she says herself that believing in the resurrection is ‘a bit bonkers’ so, whether you believe in God, the universe’s plan or simply the goodness of humanity, Kate argues that having belief equals having hope, and we all deserve to feel hopeful. With chapters about what she’s learned about life’s challenges, including love, death, loneliness and conflict, along with simple tips for us all to find more joy in our everyday lives, this insightful, warm and joyous book shows that believing in something is what makes us human – “faith isn’t about what we believe in. It’s about believing in something.”
The Reverend Kate Bottley is a vicar, journalist, radio presenter and TV personality who is passionate about sharing stories of her faith to the widest possible audience. Since rising to fame on Channel 4’s award-winning show Gogglebox, Kate now hosts Good Morning Sunday on BBC Radio 2 alongside Jason Mohammed and is a regular presenter on TV shows such as Channel 4’s Steph’s Packed Lunch and BBC’s Songs of Praise.
