Embracing New Bonds and Bridges

(p.178) 8 Conclusion
Filipino American Faith in Action

Joaquin Jay Gonzalez III

NYU Press

This chapter summarizes the preceding chapters and presents some concluding thoughts. It begins by presenting two compelling narratives that illustrate clearly the dynamics of Filipino migrant kasamahan and bayanihan, and the ways in which they both integrate and influence religion and politics in the San Francisco Bay Area. Filipino migrants have been able to integrate into segments of the religious, social, and political experiences of their San Francisco communities as well as impact their Philippine families and hometowns in three ways: transnational influence, adaptive spirit, and intergenerational cohesion. The chapter concludes with the prediction that San Francisco will continue to witness more experiences of transnational influence, adaptive spirit, and intergenerational cohesion as the next generation of Filipino migrant faithful follow in the footsteps of their parents and grandparents.
