THE NATURE OF COMPASSION
The Dalai Lama says that, “compassion is the radicalism of our time.” Drawing on the works of Karen Armstrong, interfaith leader Eboo Patel, and our lived experiences, we will explore what it means to live a life of compassion. What are the obstacles that get in our way? How does UU theology call us to practice radical compassion? Join us as we explore together the nature of compassion.
