Don’t give this up.
It's an important day.
The start of a season.
A time to prepare.
A time of sacrifice to remind us of the ultimate sacrifice of Jesus.
While you may be giving up something during this season, don't give up hope.
Don't give up hope that goodness is possible.
Don't give up hope in kindness.
Don't give up hope in people.
Don't give up hope for peace.
Don't give up hope for abundance.
Don't give up hope in reconciliation.
Don't give up hope that your faith can make you whole.
Until Everyone Hears,

1 Peter 1:13 - Be Holy
Therefore, with minds that are alert and fully sober, set your hope on the grace to be brought to you when Jesus Christ is revealed at his coming.
