An idea worth spreading
Compassion is a dangerous dream beacause it rocks the foundations of old interests and gives us new ground to stand on. Rev. Dr. Joan Brown Campbell
In this room, we have words that make a difference between death and life. Words can bring life and words can kill. Rev. Peter Storey
(Pulled from Twitter coverage of the live Charter event)

What's your favorite single sentence from a TEDTalk?
This is what I have found: to let ourselves be seen, deeply seen, vulnerably seen; to love with our whole hearts, even though there's no guarantee -- and that's really hard, and I can tell you as a parent, that's excruciatingly difficult -- to practice gratitude and joy in those moments of terror, when we're wondering, "Can I love you this much? Can I believe in this this passionately? Can I be this fierce about this?" just to be able to stop and, instead of catastrophizing what might happen, to say, "I'm just so grateful, because to feel this vulnerable means I'm alive."
