Description:
It's not ironic or even random that James, in his famous passage on 'listening and doing', says the following: “Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.” The church's response to those in distress should be to provide for their need, and this is the act that keeps us from being polluted by the world. In this session we will look at what it means to have compassion and where that compassion should be directed. In light of Covid-19, in light of the additional stressors our world faces, are we called to greater sacrifice to ensure the world can connect with a saviour and have hope reinstated?

Speaker Biography:
