Compassion Matters! Rev Kent Matthies

Mounting scientific evidence indicates that receiving compassion helps medical patients recover better.  However, many studies show that in the US health system this ingredient too often goes missing.  The increasing clarity of the positive impact of active caring -in all areas of life – exemplifies why church matters.  The mission of USG is “Building beloved community with compassion, service and empowerment.”  Taking actions based upon our compassion for ourselves and others is absolutely critical to surviving and thriving through our current challenges and opportunities.
