Responsive Readings: “Some of us are struggling with sorrow or grief”
Some of us are struggling with sorrow or grief, but are afraid to reach out for help.
Some of us are sick of ourselves and others, but don't know what to do about it.
- Some of us want to make the world a better place, but feel overwhelmed by the forces of inertia and self-interest.
We gather in this community, sometimes in fear, sometimes in trust, sometimes in pain, sometimes in joy, but always in hope that we can support and strengthen one another in our common quest for healing and wholeness.
