When He Saw Him, He Felt Compassion

We had a special Sunday at Oakridge this week, and a special Sunday begets a special podcast. This week Andrew sat down with Dean Billings from Compassion Canada to learn a little bit more about his experiences, what drew him to working with Compassion, and what sets Compassion apart from everyone else. A special thank you to Dean for taking the extra time for this conversation, and for opening up his world and his heart to us, both on Sunday and today. For those interested in finding out more, check out the link to the Oakridge/Compassion landing page ⁠here.

For more episodes of “Word Processing,” search Anchor, Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and wherever else podcasts are found.
