Cultivating Compassion Session 8: See No Stranger
The NT-NL Public Witness Team for Peace & Justice are partnering with the United States Christian Leadership Organization (USCLO), Charter for Compassion Social Justice Sector, and Kairos + Collaborative to offer this set of FREE online episodes and practice sessions to help Make This Your Year to Cultivate Compassion!
“You’re invited to spend 2023 growing compassion for yourself, your friends, and even those who today you might describe as enemies. We’ll interrogate our emotions, reasoning, decision-making, and more as we work to join the infinite game of building peace.”
Specifically about this August 24 session:
“We can look upon the face of anyone or anything around us and say – as a moral declaration and a spiritual, cosmological, and biological fact: you are part of me I do not yet know.” (p. 11) These words encapsulate what Valarie Kaur means by “see no stranger.” Through personal stories, she shares her journey toward revolutionary love, a love that embraces self, others, and even those we oppose. This kind of love invites us to experience the depth of being human, embracing joy, grief, anger, and wonder as we learn to love each other.
