This book includes discussion questions at the back so our conversation starters will come from Tutu himself. If something else strikes you about the chapters feel free to comment on that. These are deep questions even if you do not address them directly leave a comment so that others know you are taking part in this community.
God hears you as you are, even if you are tired, even if you are angry...there is an authenticity in being who we are in the presence of God. (pp. 103-104)
When do you feel like you cannot pray? What would you say that you think God can't hear? Dont' worry, God has heard it all. pg 144
Peace is not a goal to be reached buy a way of life to be lived. Violence erupts in moments of hatred and rejection, but peace is created in long years of love and acceptance. (p. 120)
How can you work in your community to foster love and acceptance, to create the conditions for true peace? How do your daily interactions in the world promote or prevent peace?
