A Lenten Self-Study– REFLECTIONS ON COMPASSION

Lent 2 – Sunday March 12

We meet for supper discussion on Sunday March 19th, 5 pm before Compline, and for a noon lunch finale on April 2nd, sharing our comments and unanswered questions from the five-week journey. Please sign up for the two meal meetings; the weekly sessions are purely your own time by yourself. – Melvia Kawashima

Using Karen Armstrong’s best seller, 12 Steps to a Compassionate Life as a resource and reading reference, we ponder questions below during this week:

  • The Fourth Step – Empathy
    How do you protect yourself from suffering?
    How has your life experience affected your choice of avocation or vocation?
  • The Fifth Step – Concern for Everybody Are you able to live in the present moment?
    How do your emotions or reactions control you?
  • The Sixth Step – Action
    How often are you conscious of thinking or behaving in a hurtful way?
    Has this consciousness helped you to stop or shift your thoughts or actions?
