Our Common Addiction
by Reverend Wayne Arnason

March 11, 2012

Wondering what this title refers to? Oil? Sweets? Love? All good answers, ones that expand our understanding of what "addiction" means, beyond alcohol or drugs. The answer Rev. Wayne wants to explore goes a little deeper into who we are as human beings, into the Buddhist teaching that we all have addictive patterns of relieving the suffering that is routine in our everyday lives. Those addictive patterns create more suffering in and of themselves. Compassion can be understood as a spiritual response to another's suffering that arises from recognizing it as our own. Anne Osborne, founder of our Addiction Ministry will join Wayne for this service.
