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.
The quiz is based on more than 10 years of research on compassion and organizations. In addition to receiving your congregation’s compassion score, you’ll also receive ideas for cultivating compassion in your congregation.
After you take the quiz, compare your results with other organizations at http://greatergood.berkeley.edu/article/item/ think_your_organization_is_compassionate. You’ll discover that places of worship don’t rank number one—or number two. Find out who does.
In addition, you can also find the compassion score by age and also by the size of organization.
Being a compassionate person is one thing, but creating a congregation that’s compassionate is another. Work together to make your congregation more caring and compassionate.
