Compassion


I quite liked this video and thought it had some relevance to my last post. It is from Bosco Peter's wonderful Liturgy blog - now fully back up and running following  a three weeks hiatus after the Christ Church earthquake.

Question for the day -  is God more interested in how we treat others or in what we believe?

  1. Thanks for this one Suem
    I like the video too, and in a way it answers your question doesn't it?
    What we believe surely influences how we treat others.

  2. This video sounds very appealing, but the sweeping statement that 'compassion is at the heart of all religious, ethical and spiritual traditions' is quite clearly optimistic nonsense.

  3. Clearly! But it should be at the heart - or close to the heart- of religion, and where would we be without a little idealism in life? Note you link to a blog by a female blogger BTW? Looks very good though.
