A CALL TO COMPASSION

ON NOVEMBER 12 the Charter for Compassion is being launched to leverage what its founder, academic and author Karen Armstrong, sees as a quality that is basic to all the faith teachings she has studied. "Bringing together voices from all cultures and religions," says its website, "the Charter seeks to remind the world we already share the core principles of compassion."

From the standpoint of Christian Science, which asserts that divine Love "imparts the clearest idea of Deity," compassion is a key element inliving a spiritual life (Science and Health, p. 517). And in several places, the Bible says Jesus was "moved with compassion" as the motive for his works of healing, teaching, and caring for others.
