I’m being interviewed this morning by the local newspaper on the subject of Advent and the theme of “hope.”
The title of this blog comes from Hebrews 6:19 — “We have this hope, a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul.” Our hope, of course, is Christ.
In the season of Advent, particularly, we focus on the hope of the resurrection and look forward to the coming kingdom of God.
More generally, though, I think hope springs from knowing you’re not alone, from receiving help given by those who have been through difficulty, and from sharing what has helped you with other people.
I’ll talk with the reporter today about my parish, about local nonprofit organizations I work with and support, about recovery groups, and about other places where people find (and give) hope.
Where do you find hope? Where do you give hope to others?
