A resolution about the Charter for Compassion will come up at the Church’s Annual Meeting in May. Compassion is the principled determination to put ourselves in the shoes of the other, and treat others as we wish to be treated. The Charter is cooperative effort to restore not only compassionate thinking, but more importantly, compassionate action to the center of religions, moral and political life.
