Mi Casa Uptown

Learning to Love Again
,

What if, instead of contempt, familiarity bred love?

It seems as if the more we get to know one another, the more we are disappointed. When the scars of our friends, family, and neighbors are exposed, we are tempted to turn and run. But there is another way. Pastor and storyteller Rich Perez casts vision for what it might look like to pursue love–love expressed with eyes wide open–in the context of the real world. Because love is not primarily a feeling, an emotion, or a sentiment, Perez challenges readers through a combination of memoir and teaching to take a different path than the momentum that carries the culture we live in. With the flavor of Washington Heights, New York, readers will be transported into Perez's neighborhood on a journey to learn how to love again.
