As we enter into December, we face into the darker and shorter days of the year, we look for ways to find the light in the midst of the longest night. This is the time when if we cultivate our faith and seed hope we may be able to carry on in the bleak midwinter. Join Rev. Dr. Marjorie Matty as she faces into the darkness and uncovers a bigger kind of joy fueled by hope. She shares that, ” Hope can be a dangerous emotion because it pulls our attention away from the present moment. Hope can blind us from the truth of a situation, however, hope is also an emotion that gives us the energy to live despite challenges, to love despite uncertainty, and to embrace both who we are in the moment and what we may become, with faith instead of fear as our guide.” Let us find hope and a bigger kind of joy together during this holiday season.
A Bigger Kind of Joy…
