Compassion Connect encouraging the next Generation

A random email, a passionate leader, and Kingdom work

Compassion Connect encouraging the next Generation

We get lots of emails from all over the world and its easy to get overwhelmed and ignore emails that have no face, no tone, no immediate reason why it relates to CC. 

But we know that our success and growth is only the work of a mighty God and our humble beginnings can't only be beginnings but rather a culture without end. 

So when we got an email a few years ago from a young medical student asking for advice and help, we took up the conversation never knowing what God had in store.  Read Ms. Namita Crow's note and a brief look at what she is doing now for Gods Glory.

Impressions of Compassion

Our intern shares her thoughts on collaboration and compassion

Impressions of Compassion
After hearing story upon story about how God moves when the body of Christ functions as one unit, it still seems that we underestimate how great the impact of our efforts to love and serve our community can be. Every time I attend a Compassion Clinic, whether it is to observe or to serve, I am always reminded of the enormity of Gods power expressed through life changing moments.....

New Collaboration in NW

The battle for the spiritual health of our city begins here

Posted in Blog, News, Prayer

New Collaboration in NW

Here, before the first piece of armor is ever worn, before the first drop of blood, sweat, or tears is ever shed. Paul, writing to the Ephesians of our battle “against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms,” he doesn’t end with the armor. He ends here:

“Pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.” (Ephesians 6:18)

 

 

This end is our beginning.

A Life Worth Imitating

A tribute to Marian Pattison 1930-2013

A Life Worth Imitating

Without a doubt we all have someone in our life that we look up to, a person who has characteristics or strengths we desire to develop, a person who we quietly set our aspirations toward, who we are inspired by, who we are challenged by.

"I Am the State"

How The Church and DHS are collaborating

Posted in Blog, News, Reflections

At the end of October of 2013 Compassion Connect was privileged to host a banquet in honor of those who have contributed to the vision of Compassion Connect. It was a beautiful night, with candles, good food, and great company. As the group reflected on what they were thankful for, and how the Lord had blessed them, the once bare tree on stage sprang to life as garlands of leaves with ink on them laid gracefully on the branches. The leaves were covered with words spurred by the question, “What are you thankful for?” Grace, love, laughter, family, Compassion Connect, friends, a home, opportunities, sunshine, and numerous other words that symbolize the blessings that God has richly lavished on our lives transformed the bare branches. It was said that “from thanksgiving, comes life” and that was shown when the complete transformation of a tree, which almost looked dead, became radiantly beautiful within minutes.
