Sunday Service: Compassion — A Starting Point, Not a Finish Line

July 26, 2015 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Speaker: Guest Misha Sanders Lentz

Music: Jack Forbes Wilson, Artist in Residence

Having compassion for others is essential to the living of Unitarian Universalist principles.  But, the very idea itself creates an ‘us and them,’ and that’s where things might get tricky. Seeing the ‘other’ in ourselves is sometimes challenging, but necessary if we are to do the real next-step work of compassion, which is inclusion.  Let’s talk about what that means in our real lives.

Misha Lentz is about to begin her second year as a seminarian at Meadville Lombard Theological School. She is currently working as an intern chaplain at Good Samaritan Hospital in Downers Grove, and is taking a break this week from her position as the summer minister at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Rock Valley, in Rockton, Illinois.  She has one favorite daughter, Kadison, who is 14 years old. They live with their fat ginger cat, Moxie, who is really the boss.
