Immense sadness

A note to person Anonymous:

Dear friend, I read your latest post on my blog, and for you, my heart breaks. My heart breaks that you have felt no/little love in our community, that you feel like you are unwelcomed in the midst of this community and that ultimately you feel that you have been actively unloved by our community. I don't know when you have interacted with our community, whether it is on a weekly basis (perhaps, you are someone that we come into contact with on a regular basis) or it was some time in the past. I want you know to know that like our community is in the midst of change. That we are continuously moving towards love. We by no means think we are perfect in this area, but I do think we are trying to be more loving each day.

My hope is that somehow you do find redemption, that you find healing, and the anger you feel towards this community will be released. Until then, please do not hesitate to ask questions, and I even encourage you to make up a fake email address if you would prefer to talk to me over email (as opposed to the blog). But to be honest, I think I know who you are, so if you want to have a conversation, call me (I know you have my number), we can talk face to face.

In love,

On a complete side note, I keep getting tweaked this weekend...there is immense pain, sadness and anger...this is good, but with a week to go on the retreat, this could blow up in my face.

I am 100% positive you have no idea who I am. (although I find it interesting that you think you do)
I would like to talk to you over email. You can email me at
