Today's Lectionary Text
And not only that, but we also boast in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not disappoint us, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit that has been given to us.
Where do you find hope? Here are some of the places I find it.
Isaiah 43:19 tells us19 See, I am doing a new thing!
Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
I am making a way in the wilderness
and streams in the wasteland.
As we continue through the days ahead, may we look for ways to see hope and the ways God is doing new things.

Prayer for Reflection
God of Creation- when we are tired of winter, when we are despairing over our broken church, our broken lives and our broken world, remind us that you are the God of hope and that all we have to do is look around us to find you and the new things you are doing.
