Many of us are discouraged about personal concerns, health issues, or national and world events. Can we find room for hope? What are the stories of hope? When I think of the meaning of hope at least two sources come to mind. One includes lines from a poem by Emily Dickinson likening hope to a bird. The second from Vaclav Havel, who proposes that hope, rather than a prognostication, is an “orientation of the spirit” and of the heart.
