EMPATHY IS SOMETHING WE ALL NEED—and it’s something we all can give.  A new book from Stephen Ministries (The Gift of Empathy: Helping Others Feel Valued, Cared for, and Understood) lays out principles and practices that empower you to better understand, connect with, and care for family, friends, coworkers, and others you may relate to.  Are you interested in being part of a group study of this book, starting in January? If so, contact Fred Schott for details. (
