In August, our worship will be shaped around the book “Compassion in Practice: The Way of Jesus” by Frank Rogers Jr. Read about the book below, and join us in worship as we unpack this book, or on Wednesdays for a Zoom book club. Contact Pastor Bart at email@example.com for more info.
Every day our communities strain under the weight of our individual and collective rage. We resent, blame, and dismiss others, violating the foundational principles of our most sacred institutions. Yet Jesus’ call to compassion remains, and we wonder whether we can fulfill it. How can we presume to live compassionately when our world threatens to consume us, throbbing with boundless discrimination, violence, and greed?
Frank Rogers Jr. has heard Jesus’ call to a life of love, peace, grace, and justice. Let Rogers teach you how to follow Jesus’ path of radical compassion. AS you follow the steps of his Compassion Practice, you will discover life apart from the systems that deaden and dehumanize. You will learn how to love yourself and others. This book will help you focus your heart, cultivate compassion, and transform the world.
