Simply Lent 3… (re-post amended)

 

“All I know for sure is that anticipatory hope is not enough anymore,
participatory hope is the only kind that will work now.” –

We are careful at this point. Careful to do no harm. Careful to find creative ways to express our concern with the people, so important, so vulnerable. People who we cannot touch or even be near.

This has been a season aching for hope. We have stretched beyond our limits to find the spaces where hope shines in the future. This is not passive longing. The hope we seek is waiting to be discovered through our willingness, our ability to engage in the world before us.

No one dares describe hope’s path to be easy. But we are all stirred by our connection to one another.

May our lives reflect hope so that peace may grow to cover the earth.
