Word of the Week: compassion

In the wake of tragedy, like what we’ve seen in the aftermath of the Haitian earthquake, I’m always convicted by the feeling that my sense of compassion shouldn’t be just limited to catastrophic events but should be an ever-present way that I view the world and try to treat others.  I’ve been so encouraged though by how some of my friends and their families are trying to help out… from baking bread and cookies to raise money, to one Southern Californian photographer friend who is donating a large portion of all of her bookings for the next month.   May we all carefully consider the ways we might be able to help others, and may we also carry this out in our day-to-day lives, and teach our little ones to be people of compassion and generosity.
