Reposting: Karen Armstrong's Charter For Compassion

Friend Chris Jimmerson blogged recently regarding Karen Armstrong's Charter for Compassion.  His blogpost has a 3 minute video and a link to the charter itself.

Can I continue to challenge my liberally religious community that living a faith absent a creed has outlived its utility?

(PS:  How cool is it that she merges the enso circle with the infinite loop?? Darn! I wish I had thought of that!  Imperfect infinity!   Perfect!)

Hi Ed,

I love the message that Karen Armstrong brings. I am new to the UU tradition and am feeling my way along, learning so I don't propose to be able to speak any words of challenge. However, I am do think the charter for compassion is so universal and so incredibly beautiful and life-giving, it seems to be have a wholeness that everyone could adopt.

Thank you for the conversation about vulnerability with Brene Brown. I am a long time fan of her. I appreciate being able to stretch and consider deeply what role vulnerability plays in my life, singularly and in community.

Just today saw your comments. Thank you for engaging a conversation.

I consider that the UU tradition is also universal, beautiful, life-giving, and has a wholeness that everyone can adopt.

Maybe that's the magnetic field that attracts people like you and I to universal wisdom like what comes from Brene Brown, Karen Armstrong and UUism, to name just a few.

Maybe.
