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.
When we look squarely at injustice and get involved, we actually feel less pain, not more, because we overcome the gnawing guilt and despair that festers under our numbness.(p.68)
Where are you feeling guilty and numb about the suffering around you? How can you begin to look at this injustice and get involved? pg 140
... if we are to be true partners with God, we must learn to see with the eyes of God-that is, to see with the eyes of the heart and not just with the eyes of the head. The eyes of the heart are not concerned with appearances but with essences...(pp. 71-72)
Can you soften your eyes and look around you with your heart? Can you see through the physical appearances to the divine essence in each person around you and in your life? pg 141
