A few years ago, my niece Michelle sat on the couch crying. She just received word that good friends had been in a serious auto accident, hit head-on by a drunk driver. Her 3-year old son, Tyler, climbed into her lap, put his arm around her saying, “It’ll be ok, mom, I’m here.”
As our children grow, our hopeful prayer is they will be people of compassion, responding to others’ needs.
How compassionate is your congregation? Your children’s ministry? Your youth ministry? Your adult education? Other specific ministries? The Greater Good Science Center has created a free, online quiz to help your congregation or ministry assess how compassionate it is. Visit: http://greatergood.berkeley.edu/quizzes/take_quiz/11.
