Rebecca Solnit once wrote, “I still value hope, but I see it as only part of what’s required, a starting point. Think of it as the match but not the tinder or the blaze. To matter, to change the world, you also need devotion and will and you need to act. Hope is only where it begins.”
This week, we’ll reflect on the idea that hope is not an end in itself, but a propelling force that pushes us out into courage and commitment. It is a starting point. We all have to start the next part of our journey somewhere.
