Compassion is the appropriate identification with the suffering of others leading to enabling action. Compassion is elicited by the observation of suffering. We allow the pain of others to touch our hearts in an appropriate way – neither too much nor too little. Too much will lead to burnout, too little leads to cold and distant relationships.
Appropriate identification touches us deeply enough that it stirs us into action – enabling action. By this we mean that we empower those who suffer to identify and solve their own problems using their own means as soon as possible. We take extra care not to make them dependent on us in the long run.

The Saline Process is a witness training designed to equip and mobilize Christian healthcare workers as witnesses of the love and reality of Jesus in their place of work. This is not limited to an in-person training, but includes it.
The training provides practical tools to help a Christian demonstrate the love and reality of Jesus in healthcare, all with permission, sensitivity and respect.
