Letting Go While Holding Tight

In The Blue Jay’s Dance: A Memoir of Early Motherhood, Louise Erdrich writes, “This is our human problem, one common to parents, [children], too–how to let go while holding tight, how to simultaneously cherish the closeness and intricacy of the bond while at the same time letting out the raveling string, the red yarn that ties our hearts.” For Mother’s Day this year, let’s explore this idea of letting go while holding tight. You are invited to join the First Parish team at the Louis D. Brown Peace Institute’s Mother’s Day Walk for Peace before the service as well.
