The Online Book Club: Barking to the Choir by Gregory Boyle, S.J.
Apr 15 - May 19, 2020 | $25
In Barking to the Choir, Gregory Boyle S.J. writes a second compelling account of his ministry in Homeboy Industries, a collective of enterprises he founded that is centered on a community in which men and women discover that they are more than gang members. Join us in discussing the touching, often humorous, accounts that illustrate God’s presence in the midst of their community. Subtitled “The Power of Radical Kinship,” Boyle shows us how love, joy, and letting go of judgment are formative in shaping a community of resilience and providing space for each individual, including himself, to have a journey of transformation.
