Sunday Bulletin 3rd June 2011

At Wednesday Church we reflected on the Charter for Compassion http://charterforcompassion.org/site/.  I really encourage you to go through it—it warrants our reflection—perhaps use it as the basis for your daily devotions this week—paragraph by paragraph.

More than our reflection however, it calls for our commitment.  A commitment to live deliberately compassionate lives.  I believe this is exactly what Jesus meant when he said that we are to “do to others as we would have them do to us” and “love one another as I have loved you”.

To be a follower of Christ is to make compass-ion our compass for living.  Here are a few compassionate commitments…

I commit to a compassionate action every day…I commit to using compassionate language…I commit to teach my children how to love, care for, understand, and provide compassion for others…I will have more compassion for myself…I commit to work to relieve the suffering of others…I commit to care for creation….I commit to respect people of different faiths…I commit to sharing my resources to liberate, heal and empower others…   Alan
