Join two beloved spiritual luminaries for a conversation full of kinship, laughter, and joyful truths What do a Jesuit priest and a Buddhist nun have in common? It may sound like the opening to a joke, but it's actually the question that initiated an extraordinary spiritual collaboration. Father Greg Boyle and Pema Choedroen came together 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 present Creating a Culture of Tenderness, an audio program devoted to what it means to embody one's principles in the world.
