Baxter is recovering physically and spiritually from her car accident that killed a young boy; MaDear comes to believe that Jodi's husband helped lynch her older brother over 70 years ago in the Deep South; and during a Yada Yada prayer meeting, a heroin-crazed woman robs the group at knifepoint. As these events unfold, the Yada Yada Prayer Group draws close together, trying new worship styles at each other's churches, dealing with estranged families, and walking out into deeper waters of faith. After the group's first-year anniversary, they truly begin to live the meaning of their name--and discover that getting down on their knees is the most freeing place.
A robbery, a lynching, and a mourning mother shake up the Yada Yadas.
I had never felt so violated! The Yada Yada Prayer Group was "gettin' down" with God in prayer and praise one night when a heroin-crazed woman barged into my house, demanded our valuables, and threatened us with a 10-inch knife--a knife that drew blood.
We wondered if we'd ever get back to normal after this terrifying experience. I assumed we would. After all, we'd started praying together at the Chicago Women's Conference last spring, and we'd been through a lot already as spiritual sisters. This was just one more hurdle to conquer, right?
But then a well-meaning gesture suddenly incited a backlash of anger in the group, forcing us to confront generations of racial division, pain, and distrust--and stretching our friendship to the limit. And a shocking confrontation in my third-grade classroom forced me to face my own accountability and learn what true forgiveness really is.
