"What do you hope for in the new world?"

Let’s take a minute to engage with the image.

What do you notice?

Does it remind you of a story? Feelings?

Life, at times, is like walking through a dense fog. Nothing much to see. Feeling utterly lost. Not knowing which way to go.

Hope, for me, is knowing that I will find a way. I will find ways to experience the fog as a time of slowing down as Mary and Joseph did when they heard God’s call.
