Not Another “Beliefs” Column

Diane Winston’s occasional column on the gods of Los Angeles in The L.A. Times continues to besubtly subversive in the best fashion, offering quiet, compelling stories of lived religion around the city that reveal rather than declare the complexities of faith. This is not a “beliefs” column; it’s an argument by way of a series of narrative miniatures, a storytelling sermon on behalf of the minor details that make the big picture interesting.
