My reflection today comes from Fresh Bread:
“ Jesus continued to be vulnerable even to death on the cross because he knew that his life was a blessing to others. He grew evermore deeply in love with the Father, drawing strength and trust and courage from that relationship. It was his deep vulnerability that encouraged Jesus to pray: ‘let your will be done, not mine‘ (Lk 22:43) and ‘Into your hands I commit my spirit‘ (Lk23:46). It was this surrender that led to death and then to the tremendous new growth of resurrection. It is the faith moment that has given courage for change to all autumn hearts ever since.” –  Joyce Rupp
Even Jesus opened himself to be vulnerable and to accept suffering and death in his life.
He is our model. He gave us the way, the truth and the life. 
The seasons remind us of that death and resurrection proces
