Hope When We Gather


There is hope when we gather around a table
hope when words are heard and listened to
hope when we nod our heads to understand
hope when we can say "No" to disagree
hope when silence is respected
hope when we rejoice in chorus
hope when we pause from talking
giving the silent ones their voice.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
