The term “compassionate service” is used in our community and refers to love-inspired assistance willingly given to meet physical, spiritual, and emotional needs of another.
It requires a sensitivity that perceives human distress beyond spoken words, an eye that recognizes the good in people, and an understanding heart, attuned to discern what is appropriate to say and do to uplift the human spirit.
Compassionate Service can consist of the following pairings:
Two Ears to listen
Two Hands being of service
Two Feet ready to go the distance
Two Eyes seeing what needs to be done
