Church Inclusive: Ninth Sunday After Pentecost 7 August 2022-Month of Compassion
Dearly Beloved Franciscans,
August is the month which the Anglican Church in Southern Africa sets aside to remind us of our call to be enleshments of our *compassionate* Christ.
It is frighteningly easy to become heart-hardened when we’re bordering on exhaustion, stressed, anxious, etc, and yet… is this not precisely the time in which we need to be attentive to our need for self-compassion. When we do attend to this key need, then we’ll more easily open ourselves to offering compassion to others.
As we share in this month of compassion, we do so either in-person or online. Herewith the link for Sunday’s Eucharistic Service :
