Constancia is made known to the reader as a socially-caring teenager, arguing over taking her “embarrassing” grandmother to church, “[Her] father [decided] that he should stay home with my mother and that I should escort la abuela to church. He [told] me this on Saturday night as [I was] getting ready to go out to the mall with my friends.’No way,’ I [said].” (Ortiz Cofer 1).

They have a teacher who most likely only completed the eighth grade and who generally doesn’t have any additional schooling besides their own Amish education. The teacher would be selected by a group of men from the district who serve as the board. Once the children reach roughly between the ages of 18 and 21 years old, they are able to make the decision to join the congregation and be baptized. This is an extremely important part of the Amish faith, which is a choice that is not forced upon them and is made solely on their own. In Amish Society, the author describes it as, “baptism signifies repentance, total commitment to the believing church-community, and admission to adulthood.” (Hostetler 77) During this period of choice, the youth go through a period known as Rumspringa, which is a critical phase in their decision to become baptized and join the Amish faith.

On the other, Jackie has moments of compromise: towards the end of the movie Jackie chooses family duty over his career, singing the religious song in his father’s place. In “Bread givers,” the Smolinsky sisters are not as fortunate. Despite the father’s mistreatment for years, Bessie’s strong sense of duty almost always holds her back from breaking away from the unpleasant family that she misses the chance to run away with the man she loves. Sara, on the other hand, seems to be able to escape her father forever when she goes to college and refuses to see her family for years. Nevertheless, she is caught by family duty when she revisits the family only to see her mother dying, and this makes Sara
It is clear that the woman is afraid of her son and the power he has. It is not said who is the receiver of the letter either, but we can assume that he was somewhat close to the mother and her son, because he had asked her about her son before in a letter. She was surprised to receive a letter from him, but she also expresses her relief to tell somebody about her worries. She writes in the letter that her son was good in school and that is something that the consignee of the letter should already know, if he knew her son at all. So from this we could guess that he is someone from their past.
Seeing that her father is having difficulties reading the advanced book she takes it away and they start reading Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss. Sam then has a parent-teacher conference since Lucy is holding back in class and doesn’t want to advance, as to not leave him behind.

He might say I matter, but when he goes on a scavenger hunt for a book, I realize I don’t matter” (Lopez paragraph 26). This shows that the daughter feels that her father does not care as much about her. She feels unloved and alone because her own father just blatantly left the table trying to find a book and did not stir up a conversation with her daughter. Finally, at the end of the passage, when the father greets the daughter with the book in her room, as soon as he left, she expressed, “I put the book on the nightstand and use it as a coaster. The condensation from my soda leaves a big, wet circle on the cover” (Lopez paragraph 34).
Throughout the course of any given weekend across America a religious ritual is taking place. People find themselves returning to church and sitting in the same seat because they consider themselves devoted Christians. The congregation sings songs of joy and pray as if judgment day was upon them. The majority of Christians illustrates an imitation Christ-like character but secretly conceal their true sinful ways deep within their hearts. Flannery O’Conner in her short stories “A Good Man is Hard to Find,” “Revelation,” and “Everything That Rises Must Converge” uses her theme of religious self-righteous hypocrisy to persuade readers to examine their spiritual life, repent of their sine, and begin living authentic Christian lives.
