“COMPASSION means ‘to suffer with’. Not pity. Not sympathy. Not saving. But
co-suffering. It’s a visceral desire to be with each other in the pain and a vital longing for new possibilities together.”
// Jay & Katherine Wolf, Hope Heals
Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.
// Colossians 3:12
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us all in our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.
// 2 Corinthians 1:3-4
As we seek to understand and find unity against the evil of racism and hatred, find ways to reach out and show compassion to those around you.
No matter what, we all need extra love and care in these days.
