“To live deeply in the spirit of hope

is to find the courage to create in

the midst of darkness

(Pat Mische)


The drama continues in Washington, D.C. but truth is winning and will continue to prevail. This gives us hope. What is hope? Author William F. Lynch (“Images of Hope”) offers this definition:


“Hope is the fundamental knowledge and feeling that there is a way out of difficulty, that things can work out; that we, as human beings can somehow handle and manage internal and external reality.”


Lynch also points out that the ability to wait is central to hope. “If hope directs itself toward good things that belong to the future and that are only difficult to achieve, then it must know how to wait.”
