Barking to the Choir: The Power of Radical Kinship
In a nation deeply divided and plagued by poverty and violence, Barking to the Choir offers a snapshot into the challenges and joys of life on the margins. Sergio, arrested at age nine, in a gang by age twelve, and serving time shortly thereafter, now works with the substance-abuse team at Homeboy to help others find sobriety. Jamal, abandoned by his family when he tried to attend school at age seven, gradually finds forgiveness for his schizophrenic mother. New father Cuco, who never knew his own dad, thinks of a daily adventure on which to take his four-year-old son. These former gang members uplift the soul and reveal how bright life can be when filled with unconditional love and kindness.This book is guaranteed to shake up our ideas about God and about people with a glimpse at a world defined by more compassion and fewer barriers. Gently and humorously, Barking to the Choir invites us to find kinship with one another and re-convinces us all of our own goodness.
Creating a Culture of Tenderness: Embracing Our Kinship with All of Life
A Heartfelt Conversation on Compassion, Forgiveness, and the Power of Second ChancesWhat do a Buddhist nun and a Jesuit priest have in common? It may sound like the opening to a joke, but it’s actually the question that initiated an extraordinary spiritual collaboration.Pema Chödrön and Father Greg Boyle met in a night of interfaith conversation for a great cause: aiding Homeboy Industries, the world’s largest rehabilitation, re-entry, and job training program for former gang members. Originally founded by Father Greg in 1992, Homeboy Industries has helped thousands of people find renewed hope after leaving gang life.Now Father Greg and Pema’s conversation is available as Creating a Culture of Tenderness, an audio program devoted to what it means to embody one’s principles in the world. Co-teaching for the first time, here these beloved spiritual teachers offer an entertaining and inspiring dialogue on recognizing each other’s innate humanity, the power of second chances, and the profound connections between the world’s faiths. Creating a Culture of Tenderness truly demonstrates how forgiveness and service to others can reveal the most vital spiritual truths.
