On a bi-monthly basis, the Compassion Consortium suggests a book, film or compassionate practice for you to consider that relates to our mission. Please join us to discuss and exchange thoughts regarding the topic being explored and its meaning to you. When possible, we will be joined by the book’s author, the film maker, or someone who is an expert in the compassionate practice being discussed.

Our next book/film talk night will be announced soon. Meanwhile, we invite you to come to Sunday Service,
or consider joining us at one of the following events:

The Compassion Consortium at the Parliament of the World's Religions

The Compassion Consortium is very proud to announce that the CC Cofounders have been selected to present at the Parliament of the World’s Religions, August 14-18, 2023, in Chicago. 

The Parliament of the World’s Religions was created to cultivate harmony among the world’s religious and spiritual communities and foster their engagement with the world and its guiding institutions in order to achieve a just, peaceful and sustainable world. 

Its origins are rooted in the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago, where the historic first convening of the World Parliament of Religions created a global platform for engagement of religions of the east and west.

For more information about this event, its programs and registration details, see Parliament of the World's Religions

Following are the events in which the CC cofounders will be participating in. Please join us in congratulating these cofounders for their selections to the program, and we hope you can join us in Chicago:
