Compassion helps us see
and welcome
When we gather together at the table, we accept each other in the same way God accepts us.

Compassion
helps us be
brave

To be brave is letting God help us see and reach out to our neighbor.  When we do this, we experience the miracle of God's power to restore and make our community whole.

Compassion helps
us practice
self-care

Self-care means showing gentleness and kindness to ourselves in heart, soul, mind, and strength.  When we honor ourselves, we experience how God sees and loves us.

Compassion helps us be present with each other.

When we follow God's Spirit, and are open to the people we encounter along the way, they can experience God's Spirit through our care.

Compassion
gives us
a fresh start

Rest, sabbath, fresh starts, and taking care of one another are all important forms of compassion and justice.
