2019 Afer Pentecost Lectionary: Let Us Not Grow Weary

 

Let us not grow weary in doing what is right.

Hope begins in the dark, the stubborn hope that if you just show up and try to do the right thing, the dawn will come. You wait and watch and work: you don’t give up.

Anne Lamott, Bird by Bird, p xiii

What makes you weary? Where is your stubborn hope?
