"Awakening Compassion . . . Can It Be Taught?"
Some people believe that compassion is inna te to all humans.
Others believe although it is there, activities and events during our lives can increase this characteristic.
We will look at compassion itself and some programs that hope to increase it. What is this illusive quality? What makes it real and present in our lives?
Jim and Carol formerly lived in the area and were frequent contributors and leaders at UUCR. In our pulpit they were thought provoking, creative, and generous. Recalled was one Water Ceremony they led complete with visual and auditory effects reminding us of the wonder and power of water.
These two medical professional people have experienced many opportunities to receive and give compassion. We welcome them ad look forward to their stories and their return to UUCR.
