God describes him/herself to a man called Moses saying, ‘I AM who I AM’ and ‘The Lord, the Lord, the compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness’.

So, what is compassion?  I think of it as keeping company in passion; feeling with another person (or ourselves) and staying physically and emotionally present with one another.  Compassion is a part of love that renounces fear/awkwardness in order to prevent a person feeling abandoned or alone.  The expression of compassion relies on courage to take part in the feelings of another soul and a commitment to understanding the importance of emotions.

This song is one of the most beautiful expressions of compassion (God’s) that I have come across.  Enjoy!
