The Gift and Grace of God’s Compassion on Zoom

January 10 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm


Compassion means ‘suffering with.’  Deep within our experience of compassion lies a most intimate and essential gift from God. Through our experience of love and transformation by God’s loving presence, we become empowered as ‘carriers of God’s compassion’ for others and our earth home. We can experience a profound union as an outpouring of this grace and gift of compassion within the reality of our lives with God, others, and all of creation. The richness and grace of God’s compassion can become a vital life-giving ‘charism’ for all of us in today’s world.

Time will be available for brief reflection, sharing within small groups, and opportunities for questions.
