Compassion Group, Heern Home
There are presently two Charter for Compassion groups meeting. The first is for those who have not yet been part of a twelve-step reading program working through Karen Armstrong’s 2010 book, Twelve Steps to a Compassionate Life. This group will meet the third Tuesday of every month at 5 PM at the home of Mona Heern (call Pastor Ruth for information on how to get there).
The second group is for those who already have worked through all twelve steps, but are meeting on a monthly basis to try and fine tune these steps and discover ways we can help move Murray more in the direction of being a city of compassion. This second group, in addition to reviewing Armstrong’s book, will begin discussing the 2005 book by Marc Ian Barasch, Field Notes on the Compassionate Life: A Search for the Soul of Kindness. This group meets the last Sunday of every month at 5:30 PM in the parlor at First Christian Church.
