Finding Your Calling
The main themes of the novel are guilt and grief. They are heavy burdens to carry and were never meant for us alone. “I’m tired of carrying this burden around… I… need a friend who will listen to me.” As well as friends, we also need God but in our grief, we may pull away from Him. “If only he remembered how to pray. His ability to talk to God had died the day Gabriel was killed.” God longs for us to return to Him.
