With all the talk about the Habits of Hope (Gather, Pray, Serve, & Learn), what happened to worship? Shouldn’t it be included?   

I'll hear better if I mute myself. The truth of that statement goes beyond online meetings—yes? 

When we learn from classes and books, we may get knowledge, but when we learn from life, the result is wisdom. Books and classes can be helpful, but they can also be a distraction from the lessons life is trying to teach us.  

Learning anything important requires humility and courage. Ask any couple married more than a month (or anyone raising a child for more than a day!) Becoming a Person of Hope seems simple enough—until you actually try it.
