A Most Excellent Homeboy


One of my podcast addictions is the show Word For Word, produced and distributed by American Public Radio. This program takes the best speeches and presentations made around the country and rebroadcasts them. Word For Word is how I have been able to recently listen to Sam Harris, Ted Sorenson, and many, many others.

Today was a little different from normal, for so many of the presentations tend to focus on politics. Instead, Father Greg Boyle, a Jesuit priest, was speaking on his vision of community in the context of the gang rehabilitation program that he leads, Homeboy Industries.

This speech was both inspiring and deeply theological, and I encourage you to check it out. Download it by clicking here.
