Dealing with Empathy Fatigue?
– The problems in our world can feel overwhelming. Is it possible to stay compassionately engaged in the face of so many societal problems? Today we will view a video of a sermon entitled “This is Us”. This sermon was delivered by Connie Simon, Intern Minister Unitarian Society of Germantown, this past February and offers us some advice for how to cope with today’s events and ends with a good pep talk by reminding us of our UU heritage. We will reflect on her message and suggest ways in which we can help develop sustained compassion and action.
