Rev. Lilli Nye speaks about the new “Charter for Compassion” project, spearheaded by religions scholar Karen Armstrong, makes an urgent call to “all men and women…to restore compassion to the centre of morality and religion…[and] to cultivate an informed empathy with the suffering of all human beings…” As images of suffering and urgent need flood our awareness from all corners of our world, near and far, we struggle to find a meaningful way of responding in the midst of our preoccupied lives. This sermon will explore how can we keep compassion as a dynamic force in our personal lives when we may feel both too much and too little.
