“Finally, all of you have unity of spirit, sympathy, love for one another, a tender heart, and a humble mind. Do not repay evil for evil, or abuse for abuse; but, on the contrary, repay with a blessing. It is for this that you were called—that you might inherit a blessing.”
1 Peter 3:8-9
“Jesus’ way of radical compassion aligns our spirit with the Divine Spirit that brings life out of death, hope in the face of despair, love within the lethal contagion of hate in our world. As sure as the night gives way to the dawn, all creation is held within the heartbeat of God that pulsates new life into our planet. And God’s heart beats to the pulse of compassion. When we embody love and mercy, we live in union with God. Our hearts beat as one with the sacred heartbeat that sustains and resuscitates all life.” Frank Rogers Jr., Compassion in Practice: The Way of Jesus
