Maybe it’s not a coincidence that our home, Earth, is tilted at 23 and a half degrees, giving us the seasons. Maybe, as our solar system was forming and swirling around, God nudged us a tiny bit to create a merciful gift to serve as a reminder. A reminder that death and darkness never have the last word over new birth and the brightness of light.

The Gift of Hope
Hope is fueled by the presence of God in our lives. But hope is also fueled by the future of God in our lives: a small seed that perhaps we cannot even see right now, planted by God into the ground of our being.
