The Unitarian Trinity: Justice, Equity & Compassion

We’ll concentrate on the compassion piece of this Principle today. Compassion, usually taken to mean acts of kindness, literally means “to suffer with.” If we want to respond in a sacred and loving way to the people of the world, whether we consider them friends or enemies, we have to place ourselves in their shoes. Real justice and equity flow naturally from the tender-hearted perspective of compassion. (We will also talk about being more compassionate toward ourselves!)
