Things to consider this December:
What does it mean to be a people of HOPE?
Do you agree with Charles Bukowski, who says, “Hope is a touch of graceful humor no matter what’s occurring. The ability to laugh, the ability to see the ridiculous, the ability not to tense up too much when things become impossible…. That’s hope: humor, guts, and courage, no matter the odds.” In your view, are hope and humor connected?
OK, let’s say we already have hope about the future. Perhaps that’s the starting point. “To matter, to change the world, you also need devotion and will and you need to act. Hope is only where it begins.” — Rebecca Solnit
What do you have hope about, and what might be the next step?
