A Prayer for Compassion

From Thomas Jackson

The film follows Thomas Jackson on a quest that crisscrosses America and takes him to Morocco for the UN Climate Conference and throughout the Indian subcontinent to ask the question, “Can compassion grow to include all beings? Can people who identify as religious or spiritual come to embrace the call to include all human and nonhuman beings in our circle of respect and caring and love?”

Drawing on traditions including Christianity — evangelical, Roman Catholic, Eastern Orthodox, Friends (Quakers), Seventh Day Adventism, Unity, and more; Judaism; Islam; Hinduism; Buddhism; Jainism; the Native American tradition; Unitarian Universalism; Zoroastrianism; and the “spiritual but not religious” point of view — A Prayer for Compassion calls on people of faith and spiritual seekers of every stripe to come together to bring about a world in which “The wolf will live with the lamb, the leopard will lie down with the goat, the calf and the lion and the yearling together; and a little child will lead them…”

Once upon a world we dream
Where love abounds
Where compassion answers
The call
Will we wake up in time
To save it all?

      I hope so. Sadly, however, so many use religion to excuse and justify a myriad of atrocities. Thank you, my dear. ❤

    Shared. Hope it will bring some more “light” into the life of people who treat animals (and humans) in a bad manner… this is becoming a dark world, we have to, this shall be our commitment, to bring into it, light and compassion! Hugs to you, dearest Stacey :-)c
