June 26–30 • 10 am to 3 pm

Compassion Camp explores what it means to have compassion for ourselves, for others, and for the world.

As we look around the world, our deep need for compassion becomes increasingly evident with each passing day, perhaps now more than ever. Compassion Camp aims to cultivate compassion for each other, ourselves, and the world. We will examine different places in our lives where we can cultivate compassion. Using each Compassion Camp component, we’ll explore themes of compassion as they relate to each session’s scripture.

Compassion Camp: What Every Living Thing Needs

This Summer, we will explore what all living things need to live—shelter, food, water, air, and community—and how we can have compassion for the living earth, especially in our local ecosystems. Through awareness, gratitude, wonderment, reciprocity, and kinship, we will consider how to become co-sustainers and participants in the work of God’s creation. Using Psalm 104 as the grounding text, along with additional supporting scripture, we will closely examine the interconnectedness of the whole earth—humans alongside the more-than-human world.
