This is our call for compassionate action.
Compassion is the most compelling force in the world.
It calls us to stop war. Prevent hunger and poverty. Celebrate diversity.
It’s the glue that holds humanity together.
It requires both inner and outer action to produce the peace and harmony we desire.
Call of Compassion NW is a resource for compassionate action at the grassroots level in our region.
We all know those who are oppressed or underserved in our midst: impacted by homelessness, racism, domestic abuse, addictions and the like, and we often are confronted by the question: "but what can I do?"
The reality is: It Begins With Us! When we engage the under-served in our neighborhoods and communities, the Call of Compassion NW Network will be there to help us, by:
To Honor Beloved Community(1) Where it is Happening.
To Help Build Beloved Community Where it is Not.
(1)We derive our understanding of Beloved Community from Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., “The Power of Non-Violence” June 1957:
The aftermath of violence is bitterness. The aftermath of non-violence is the creation of Beloved Community, so that when the battle is over, a new relationship comes into being. The end is reconciliation. The end is redemption. This is the love that may well be the salvation of our civilization .
