"Doing the Work of Love"
Rev. Dr. Daniel O'Connell

For some of us, compassion has always come easy and it is a strength we use in moderation. Others of us suffer from "compassion fatigue" and find ourselves becoming more uncaring than we'd like. And how do we muster compassion for people who really, really don't "deserve" it?
