The Gentle Road Home

The thing that leads to intimacy and relationship and connection is tenderness.

The Gentle Road Home

“Back before Christmas, I led a weekend retreat in California. At its close, one of the retreatants presented me with The Whole Language: The Power of Extravagant Tenderness. I happen to be an admirer of the book’s author, Gregory Boyle. Hes the founder of Homeboy Industries in Los Angeles, “the largest gang-intervention, rehabilitation, and reentry program in the world.” Extravagant. Tenderness. I’ve been reading snatches of Boyles book in hotel rooms, in airports, on bumpy flights.
