Christopher M., whose article Safe & Loved appears in the July 2023 issue of Grapevine, shares with Don and Sam about finding a higher power that works for him. He also talks about writing for the Grapevine. In the Listener Feedback feature, Wake Q. raises the connection between powerlessness and anonymity; and Ed B. breaks the hosts’ chops a bit.
