In this highly charged political climate, it seems that no one is talking about compassion as a moral force that can shape both our personal lives and the larger culture. Is it because showing and practicing compassion is seen as a weakness? Being compassionate is one of the most difficult spiritual tasks we can take up; and one that is essential for the well-being of our common life on the planet. Suggestion for a book to read before the sermon: Twelve Steps for a Compassionate Life by Karen Armstrong.
