“The people who sat in darkness have seen a great light, and for those who sat in the region and shadow of death light has dawned.”
–Matthew 4:16

It happens like this:

First, you lose hope.

Then, you lose the hope of hope.

Then, you lose the hope of hope of hope.

What happens next is variable.

Some of us encounter the Holy Spirit.

Some of us are crushed. 

So come with me today:

Put your shoulder to the wheel.

Let us resolve together 

to join the Holy Spirit

in hope 

of shifting 

the boulder of the world.
