As a pastor working in a neighborhood with the highest concentration of murderous gang activity in Los Angeles, Gregory Boyle created an organization to provide jobs, job training, and encouragement so that young people could work together and learn the mutual respect that comes from collaboration.
Tattoos on the Heart is a breathtaking series of parables distilled from his 20 years in the barrio. Arranged by theme and filled with sparkling humor and glowing generosity, these down-to-earth, utterly heartening essays offer a stirring look at how full our lives could be if we could find the joy in loving others and in being loved unconditionally.
With Gregory Boyle’s guidance, we can recognize our own wounds in the broken lives and daunting struggles of the men and women in these parables and learn to find joy in all of the people around us.
All women are invited to these discussions held in the William Reif Gallery to share observations, enthusiasm, insights and the pure enjoyment of reading.
