The main theme of this chapter was love. My favorite story was the one of Luis and Tiffany. I loved the fact that Luis got to rebuild and start a life with his daughter, who he loved. However, it was also the most difficult one to read as he died in the end. Coupled with knowing that Tiffany is now fatherless, needless to say I almost cried.
Chapter 1 God, I Guess: The main theme of this chapter was joy. More specifically, God has so much joy in us that he cannot find room for disapproval. My favorite story this chapter was when G journeyed to Cochabamba and the old man dropped rose petals on him. It was so sweet and uplifting and it made me smile. This entire book is simply amazing. It has a great message.
You stand with the belligerent, the surly, and the badly behaved until bad behavior is recognized for the language it is: the vocabulary of the deeply wounded and of those whose burdens are more than they can bear.
My favorite quote by Gregory Boyle, taken from chapter 8 of Tattoos on the Heart. And that concludes my project!
