Tattoos on the Heart


My Favorite Bible Studies for Women - Vibrant Christian Living

Tuesdays: 1:00-2:30 PM in Carr Room

Beginning January 11, 2022.

The Little Rock Women’s group have decided to have a book study and reflection.  If gives a chance to see how the scripture we study is lived out in real time and real lives.  In his first book, Tattoos on the Heart: The Power of Boundless Compassion, Fr. Gregory Boyle introduces us to Homeboy Industries, the largest gang-intervention program in the world. Fr. Boyle reveals how com­passion is transforming the lives of gang members. In reading the book we also learn how compassion transforms each of us. In a nation deeply divided and plagued by poverty and violence.  As you read the stories of these former gang members you feel your own soul uplifted.  Unconditional love and kindness offer gifts of life. Join with other women to reflect on, study and discuss this book.  The book is available at the library and bookstores.
