Facilitator: Claudia Temple
Slowly (the tree) celebrated the sacrament of letting go
First she surrendered her green,
then the orange, yellow, and red.
Finally she let go of her brown.
Shedding her last leaf
she stood empty and silent , stripped bare.
Leaning against the autumn sky
she began her vigil of trust.
Once we discover that we already possess
enough grace to let go,
trust begins to form in the center of who we are.
Then we can stand open, empty, and vulnerable,
ready to receive God's next gift.
