A Seagull Named Papa
Barry J. Robinson, author
A Seagull Named Papa is a gentle but powerful exploration of those aspects of our experience that invite and sometimes challenge us to develop such necessary human qualities as courage, compassion, tolerance, humility, patience, defiance, contrition and perseverance. Get ready to laugh, cry and wonder at the deeply healing experiences of a violent ex-convict who is healed by a simple invitation; an eight-year old girl trying to recover from school-yard name-calling; a bullying supervisor stopped in his tracks; an eighty-seven year old woman who never got to say goodbye to her long-lost papa; and married therapists fortuitously visited by a clown. Exploring such themes as humility, non-violent resistance, holding in sin, tolerance, poverty, redemption, contrition, the challenge of mercy, facing your inner demons and repairing the world, Barry Robinson invites you to listen for that insistent call that is there at the very heart of your life urging you to be who you really are. This is an inspiring, fascinating and immersive read that will change the way you see yourself and the world.
