WE MUST MOVE beyond the concept of processing our personal pain to the place where we can reach out to others around us who are in pain. We can do this in our personal relationships. And we can create those types of safe and sacred spaces in our faith communities where people can share the stories that lie behind their tears. If we rise to this challenge, we become Easter people in a Good Friday world.
