KEEP IN TOUCH
Here we are, once again, after the August 'vacation' from the KITnewsletter, and the annual Friendly Crossways gathering. We were sixty-some strong this year for the Tenth Anniversary, a very relaxed event itwas, which felt more like a family home-coming than anything else. A fewfamiliar faces were missed, but some of us comforted ourselves with thethought that we would see them next time around! Meanwhile, theBruderhof continues to leak members back into the wider society at a ratethat causes both concern and delight -- concern because we know howtraumatic the transition can be, but also delight at knowing that another family has been liberated from what most of us see as a totalistic and soul-destroying way of life. Welcome 'out,' all of you! May you thrive and revelin your freedom to be able to be yourselves!
