The Heart of Holiness – Compassion and the Holy Life
February 25-27, 2014

Conference Description
The ONU “Pastor Appreciation Days” event sought to explore the relationship between holiness and compassion, and how compassion is not a peripheral activity of service or generosity, but part of the essential expression of holiness.
