Never underestimate the power of dreams and the influence of the human spirit.

“Faith is the bird that feels the light and sings when the dawn is still dark.”
“Hope” is the thing with feathers –
That perches in the soul –
And sings the tune without the words –
And never stops – at all –
And sweetest – in the Gale – is heard –
And sore must be the storm –
That could abash the little Bird
That kept so many warm –
I've heard it in the chilliest land –
And on the strangest Sea –
Yet, never, in Extremity,
It asked a crumb – of Me.
- Emily Dickinson
The object of our hope gives clearer indication of our relationship to biblical faith than
what we do on Sunday morning… What do we hope for? Is it for the kind of terrible and
responsible freedom that comes from living in a defatalized world—the world in which
God has handed the reins over to us and won’t comes down from the cross even to save
himself? Do we hope for this, or for something less demanding?
- Harvey Cox
What then shall we say to this? If God is for us, who can be against us?
- Romans 8:31
For last year's words belong to last year's language and next year's words await another voice.
- T.S. Eliot
