I am always a little wary of blogging about personal stuff (mine or that relating to my congregation) which is probably why there have been so few blog posts over the past year or so.
It has been another year in limbo with our building and 18 months spent as guests in someone else’s space.
And a year in which ongoing problems with my voice have caused me to question myself and my calling.
It has been a difficult journey and now there is light breaking into darkness.
A quote from Joan Chittister has been buzzing around my mind of late.
It is about holding on to hope and to all those small acts of will which can eventually transform darkness into light.
“Hope is not a denial of reality. But it is also not some kind of spiritual elixir. It is not a placebo infused out of nowhere. Hope is a series of small actions that transform darkness into light. It is putting one foot in front of the other when we can find no reason to do so at all”.
