I could write a whole book. I would not come anywhere close to being as eloquent as the writer who posted on the link below. While you are at it, this particular blog has a whole bunch of wonderful writing. A definition of hope that cuts through all kinds of first-world fluff and lays bare how much harder hope is than we want to allow ourselves to understand. This blog also has some powerful women’s voices well worth hearing. I am proud as I head out for an incredibly busy afternoon and evening, not of having words to write today, but of engaging the ministry I have been to do in this time and this place. I exist.
