People of Hope

These posts explore how invitations to Hope show up and how you can respond.

If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together. We’ve all heard this maxim, but it’s a false choice.

The promise of solitude is not to ignore the storms of life. They are real and in their wake is destruction. The hope is not to hide from them but experience them at different depths.


The season of languishing is a reminder of our own limitations, and an invitation to do things that are healthy, even (especially?) when our response is “Meh.” 

Some people make new resolutions each year. If that works for you, read no further. Happy New Year!


Instead of resolutions, I find it helpful to craft evocative questions.

My mornings always start better when I have a cup of coffee. There is something about a jolt of caffeine that helps me wake up and be ready for whatever is next.
