Compassion for the World
June 14, 2017

You may have noticed
that there is a lot of suffering in the world.
You may be going through some suffering of your own.

Times like this are when you may be tempted
to harden your heart
in an attempt to ward off some of the pain.

Now more than ever,
it’s important to access your heart of compassion.
When you "bend the knees of your heart,"
and bow down before the suffering of the world,
you come closer to the Source.
 
Turning toward those in need,
you discover the will to serve,
and become part of the solution
to the world’s problems.

Find your Buddha Wisdom.
Be useful.
This is, after all,
your highest purpose in being here.

Seattle Peace Project June-September 2017
Amazing Grace joins a number of other regional faith communities
in encouraging you to participate in this four-month peace experiment.
Modeled on a 1993 peace experiment in Washington, D.C.,
and a number of others since then,
which showed a decrease in local crime when large numbers prayed for peace,
we will meditate or pray for peace daily.
There's an app for Android to record your meditation time to measure the impact -
an Apple app is coming soon.
