"Brene Brown is a professor of social work who burst into prominence on TED Talks a couple of years ago with a presentation about vulnerability. Much of her research focuses on human capacities like compassion and empathy. She has much to teach us about caring. She thinks of compassion as a collective value: the deep belief that we are 'inextricably connected to each other in love and goodness.' Empathy, though, she thinks of as an interpersonal capacity, the ability to bring compassion alive. The Samaritan has empathy for the man lying on the side of the road. That is what compels him to stop and help."

House-to-Home Kits for Housing Forward families
Transitioning from homelessness into a home of your own is a challenge. The First United Housing Justice Team, a subcommittee of Faith in Action, will collect home furnishings to make that challenge easier for five families moving into apartments with the help of Housing Forward. Needed items include sheets, towels, kitchenware, cleaning supplies, small appliances, and more — everything we take for granted but is necessary for everyday living. Sign up on Sundays before and after worship in the Church Lounge on Sept. 15, 22, and 29, and Oct. 6. All items are due back at church no later than Sunday, Oct. 13. A SignUp Genius link to volunteer to buy needed items is available at the link below. Too busy to shop? Monetary donations are always welcome! Stop by the Housing Justice Team table on Sundays.
