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.
We are the ultimate paradox, the finite made for the infinite. Anything less than God cannot satisfy our hunger for the divine. Not even success. That is why everything else, if we give it our ultimate loyalty-money, fame, drugs, sex, whatever-turns into ashes in our mouths. (p.34)
What have you been told is the ultimate measure of your worth? What clamors for your loyalty? What undermines your ultimate loyalty to God? pg 137-138
When we see others as the enemy, we risk becoming what we hate. When we oppress others, we end up oppressing ourselves. All of our humanity is dependent on recognizing the humanity in others. (pp. 49-50)
How are you or your country becoming what you hate? How do you or your contry become oppressed when oppressing others? pg 139
