Poems about Hope
My journaling group wrote poems about "hope" this week. In light of the current situation in our world, I thought you might like to read them. We used the prompt from Emily Dickenson's poem ""Hope" Is the Thing with Feathers" I thought it would be fun if the congregation contrib-uted their own poems about "hope." If you are interested in joining in, email your poem to the church! ~Pastor Beth
Hope is the thing with blessings.
It can take away all of our guessings.
It leaves us longing for more
And surprises that are just beyond the door.
Hope is the thing with a song
We never want it to be gone.
Music can pass the miles
Or light up a face with smiles.
Hope is the thing with the wind
Almost like anticipating what's just behind the bend.
Not knowing what is to come with the turn
Just another opportunity to learn.
Hope is the thing with the light
Overcoming time from another night
Adventures await in the day
That lead us on our way.
~Rachel Durio

Hope is the thing lighter than air
That buoys my soul.
And sings the songs with all the words
That makes my life whole.
 
Comforting is the thought
That God walks us through every storm.
The storms may rage, the winds may howl.
But we are safe and warm.

I've heard it said that hope is dead
And floated out to sea.
My faith may flounder, but as of yet-
Hope has never left me.
~ Pastor Beth

"Hope" is the thing with a Flashlight
By Julie Stephenson
Hope is the thing with a flashlight
That lights our path out front.
 
Through the dark we may get lost,
But the light shines where we want.
The darkness hides a troubled world
And fear could lead our way,
 
But hope shines bright, illuminates night,
Until we find the day.
There's a shape within the dark
That seems to be a threat.
The light that shines reveals the shape
And safety is a safe bet.

As morning comes and light abounds,
It seems no need for the flashlight,
But still some things are dark in corners,
And the flashlight gives us sig
