What Is Compassion Care?

 

The Latin root of compassion, ‘compati,’ means to “suffer with.” Compassion means someone else’s heartbreak becomes your suffering. True compassion changes the way we live!

The gift of compassion moves people to action on behalf of those in need. Compassion is not simply caring about others or asking “Should I help?” but saying or focusing on “How can I help?”

Over and over, our Lord Jesus Christ felt compassion on people, healing them and comforting them. Compassion Care Ministry exists to be the “hands and feet of Jesus” to the local body of Christ at Compassion Church in Radford, Virginia.
