Hope Spreads

On the first day of 2015 I challenged Church in Progress peeps to have a read, think, pray, doodle and connect with God to help us figure out where Church in Progress might be led this year.

Alan and I got prayer doodling that very same day. I wondered with God what our community needs. The word that kept popping out was hope.

Whatever we do this year I pray that we will focus on providing hope for others and for ourselves too. Hope comes in many forms … what is hope to you?

Other bits and bobs that I thought about while doodling …hope

– everything takes time (we are always in such a rush)!

– little by little

– we don’t have to do it alone

– don’t give up

– God is colourful, mighty and ready.

– To spread love and hope – we have believe in being loving and hopeful (even when we find it hard to be loving and hopeful)

Alan also had a great insight while reading Genesis yesterday. Whether you believe it’s a myth or fact … in the Genesis story, surely God could have made everything in one day? However, God did a little bit each day and God even set aside time to rest. Is that a model we could use? A little at a time and a time to rest?

What shall we do first?
