Wikipedia says Gregory Boyle is:
“founder and director of Homeboy Industries, the world’s largest gang-intervention and rehabilitation program, and former pastor of Dolores Mission Church.”
Wikipedia didn’t mention Boyle’s wicked sense of humor, how well he impersonates people. His storytelling will make you laugh, but also make you think. ‘Compassion’ is one of his favorite words.
Boyle knows exactly how many members of the Homeboy family he has buried, victims and sometimes perpetrators of violence.
The numbers of people’s lives he’s made better — countless.
A friend referenced Boyle’s Tattoos on the Heart and I bought the audio version. Have a listen, and meet this guy. Glimpse how Homeboy Industries is transforming lives. You may find your own path shifted just a bit.
