I'd love to consider together questions such as:
- What does it mean -- for an individual Christian and for a faith community -- to make gentle a bruised world, and to tame its savageness?
- What does it mean -- for an individual Christian and a faith community -- to be compassionate of all?
- How are you being compassionate to yourself these days?
- What good does it do to repeat the Ancient Tale of God-with-us, Immanuel, God-taking-flesh that first Christmas? What's it mean to be one of God's "foolish ones"?
