Wednesday of Hope – Do Not Be Silent

Hope will never be silent.

– Harvey Milk

How to Discover the World

And the world cannot be discovered by a journey of miles,
no matter how long,
but only by a spiritual journey,
a journey of one inch,
very arduous and humbling and joyful,
by which we arrive at the ground at our feet,
and learn to be at home.

– Wendell Berry

Wednesday of Hope – Active Hope

Active Hope is waking up to the beauty of life on whose behalf we can act. We belong to this world.

– Joanna Macy

Bunny tracks in the back yard are great to wake up to!

Welcoming Mistakes

Mistakes are the portal to discovery.

– James Joyce

Wednesday of Hope – Hope in the New Year

Happy New Year!! May we continue in Hope.

 

The world is indeed full of peril, and in it there are many dark places; but still there is much that is fair, and though in all lands love is now mingled with grief, it grows perhaps the greater.

– J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

Wandering

Not all who wander are lost.
– J.R.R. Tolkien

Wednesday of Hope – Our Greatest Hope

Then I saw that wisdom excels folly as light excels darkness.
– Ecclesiastes 2:13

Christmas is the Feast of Christ Our Light coming into the world. During this season, we often refer to Jesus as Emmanuel, which means God With Us. In this our Hope rests.
