Last night at our Friends of Dismas small faith sharing group we explored Session 2 in our series on Compassion as we looked at the Golden Rule.

We reflected on Matthew 7:12 “So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.”

We also view the TEDtalk below which features author Karen Armstrong. Karen was awarded a Ted Prize several years ago to establish the Charter of Compassion which we will examine further in Session 3. Take a few moments to listen to Karen as she discusses how there is a form of the Golden Rule in all the major religions of the world.

As Jesus reminds us this one statement seems to sum up the Law and the Prophets and may just be the thread that binds us all together.
