I see Compassion has just changed their facebook profile picture to just Compassion. Where is Jesus name? Are we going down that road that Wess Stafford said we would never go down? Worried!!!

John, I am so very sorry if the updated profile picture on our Facebook page has brought up concerns as our intention was not to cause worry. Please rest assured that Compassion's mission is currently and will always remain to release children from poverty in Jesus' name. The profile picture that we currently have, only had our logo Skippy and 'Compassion' for simplicity and so that the tagline wasn't too small to read if it were to have been placed on the picture. I want to encourage you that Christ remains the foundation and forefront of our ministry and that will not change :).

Yes the logo, the blue corner; the "in Jesus name", I love everything Compassion. That's why I am an advocate. Just can't help feeling the most important thing is missing.

I pray that this isn't an advertising scheme to bring in non-Christian sponsors.  I am speaking for the children of course. Romans 12:2 says "Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect".  I chose Compassion because I know what they stand for, because it was right there on the logo.  Compassion was not 'ashamed' of Christ's name and that is what drew me in. I know He is still here, and I guess I just want the whole world of unbelievers to know this is Him, too.   Continue to do  a great work in the Lord.  I have been very impressed with all of the Compassion employees with whom I have encountered.  God bless you all!

John and Sarah, 

We appreciate you as our friends and advocates in this ministry, for your accountability. You're absolutely right that Jesus is the most important piece. I encourage you that Compassion remains unashamedly Christian and our ministry will always be founded on Christ.

Compassion is holding a blogging trip this coming week in the Dominican Republic. During this blogging trip we updated our profile picture so that our page can be easily recognizable and to ensure legibility as people travel to and from our page from multiple devices, especially cell phones where it appears even smaller in size. 

Although our profile picture on our Facebook page does not have our tagline on it, it has not been changed or removed from Compassion's ministry. Please rest assured that our tagline is still, "Releasing children from poverty in Jesus' name." You can still find this in a number of places including the main page on our website at www.compassion.com and the 'About' section of our Facebook page, it remains the core of our ministry.
