Here’s the beginning of the description of October’s theme: “We cling. You name it, we’ve wrapped our grasping fingers and anxious hearts around it: success, safety, society’s standards of beauty, personal desires to be accepted, perfectionism, duty, fear, grudges, hurts, hopes, stuff, shame and privilege. Whether the object of our grasping is good or bad is not, as we learn, truly the issue. It’s the grasping itself. That’s the real problem. Holding on too long and too tightly is never good for the soul.” And, it’s our annual Apple Communion. – ERS
