Religious and secular leaders call for compassion

GIRARD — A call for compassion highlighted the 24th annual Mayors’ Prayer Breakfast.

The Mahoning Valley Association of Churches sponsored the event, which was attended by about 180 people this morning at Mahoning Country Club.

Rabbi Franklin Muller of Congregation Rodef Sholom in Youngstown asked God “to kindle in us a passion for compassion” in his opening prayer.

The keynote speaker, U.S. Rep. Tim Ryan of Niles, D-17th, continued the thought by discussing how compassion relates to individual, business and governmental responsibility.
