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.

Serving Unsung Heroes

Foster Care Needs the Community.

Serving Unsung Heroes

Over the past 30 years, my wife and I have been involved in some level of Foster Care. We started our journey by becoming foster parents ourselves and provided a safe home for some of societies most at risk children. It was a difficult but rewarding experience. So many lives were touched as a result of opening up our home and our hearts to share the love of Jesus with these fragile little children.

Compassion North Portland: Faith in Action, Faith in Place

There is power in the collaborative context

Compassion North Portland: Faith in Action, Faith in Place

On a recent sizzling Saturday in early August, more than 325 volunteers representing at least 25 North Portland churches came together in an outstanding display of care for our community for the first ever Compassion North Portland event. Working together on a wide range of teams, (including hospitality, finance, food & refreshment, childcare and social services just to name a few), neighbors shed their denominational identities and graciously took on the roles of servants. The result?
