Summertime in Santiago

This video contains footage from the streets of Santiago in the Dominican Republic set to Sarah Vaughan’s rendition of Summertime.

I have prior to this, felt the soulful sorrow of poverty in the song, but to watch it alongside these images is something else altogether, that moves me to compassion.

For Reflection:

What moves you to compassion?

How might you be able to respond to someone or something with compassion today?

As with all things, in good and in bad; in sorrow and in joy, we give thanks to God who loves us so much that he gave his Son to suffer with us, so that we might live.
