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 just want to be ourselves, but it seems that other people won't let us.
    Some of us want to make the world a better place, but feel overwhelmed by the forces of inertia and self-interest.
Some of us aren't sure what we need but hope we can find it here.

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.
