“The very least you can do in your life is figure out what you hope for. And the most you can do is live inside that hope. Not admire it from a distance but live right in it, under its roof.” – Barbara Kingsolver
I’ve been thinking a lot about hope. Hopeful and working towards the vision of beloved community that MLK Jr. and so many other activists have spoke of and are working towards. At the Unitarian church I’m attending, they have a beautiful line prior to a few quiet moments of meditation that they hold in the middle of service. “We remember that in this congregation there are some folks that are celebrating and some that are grieving.” I’m remembering today that there are some folks who are grieving the road they’ve walked this year, that there are holes in hearts from loss and loved ones that are no longer here. Also, there are folks who find themselves together with their loved ones and celebrating the life and love of their year. My hope is that we can continue to walk back to one another, to be held and to hold. Together. May you feel it today.
These Soulful Sunday blogs go out weekly on Sundays to be used as a place to step back from the hustle and bustle and explore what your soul might be saying to you. Some folks use these as journal prompts and let loose amidst pages. Some folks bring them to the kitchen table and jam over coffee. Do you, boo.
