TATTOOS ON THE HEART
Stories of Hope and Compassion
Father Gregory Boyle
Father Greg Boyle was a KF Conference Keynote Speaker and is the well-known leader of Homeboy Industries. Through sharing stories of his work with ex-gang members, Gregory Boyle unveils the humanity of people often demonized by society, simultaneously reminding us of our own humanity. Father Greg doesn't have a hero complex about helping gang members in Los Angeles make a better life for themselves, and he doesn't give us a list of success stories. Instead he introduces Sniper, Carmen, and Bugsy as brothers and sisters to admire for deciding to make a change in their lives. Then he shows how our spirituality is deeply embedded in our ability to connect with each other. Through these stories, Father Greg offers a genuine boost of encouragement to anyone looking to sustain in service work.
