Hope means to keep living

amid desperation

and to keep humming

in the darkness.

Hope is knowing

that there is love,

it is trust in tomorrow

it is falling asleep

and waking again

when the sun rises.

In the midst of a gale at sea,

it is to discover land.

In the eyes of another

it is to see that you are understood...,

As long as there is still hope

There will also be prayer...,

And you will be held

in God's Hands.

Henry J M Nouwen

"A vision without a task is a dream

    A task without a vision is drudgery

       A vision and a task is the hope of the world"

From a church in Sussex c.1730
