Why Feeling Bad Isn't Enough

Christine Caine sets the record straight on compassion.

Several years ago, I came across Christine Caine's Stop Acting Like a Christian, Just Be One at a bookstore. It stopped me in my tracks. That title spoke to my heart. And the book spoke loads of truth into my life.

This week I came across a video of Christine in Catalyst Leadership, a quarterly digital magazine put out by Catalyst and Leadership Journal. In this short video, Caine explains why compassion requires that we act. Using the story of the Good Samaritan, she explains that feeling badly for someone simply isn't enough.

Watch the video here.

How are you empowering your group members to be truly compassionate, using their time, talents, and treasures to make a difference?
