Sketchnotes on The Calling of Delight with Fr. Greg Boyle

Remember Casey Kasem’s line: “Keep your feet on the ground and keep reaching for the stars.” Father Greg Boyle does just that. He’s one of those amazing Jesuits who lives a life of the mind, then uses his moral imagination, and then puts these ideas into action. A priest well-known in certain circles for his gang intervention programs in Los Angeles, Fr. Boyle talks about things like kinship and service in the fullest sense — that we are all brothers and sisters who teach and learn from each other. As a Christian, he says the point of service is about finding kinship and “our common calling to delight in one another.”

Doug Neill‘s sketchnotes pick up on this idea in our podcast of “The Calling of Delight”:

“The day will never come when I am as holy as the people I serve.”

I’d ask you to sit down with these sketchnotes while listening to this show. See what you hear differently as you peruse these visual notes. Tell us what you thought we didn’t capture or could’ve emphasized differently.
