Bulletin 11-July-04


The Priests and Levites kept the law and practised their religion, but hadn't compassion.

The "unorthodox, wrong-side-of-town" man from Samaria did.

So, do as he did, Jesus tells us - but when do we get this compassion?

The personal involvement and self-giving entailed is usually only learned through suffering and prayer: two tools which prise open our selfish hearts to genuine compassion for the "other" - be it neighbour, enemy or friend.
