#187 I preached about #hope for #candlemas today, calling the congregation to respond to baby Jesus and the message of hope that Simeon and Anna saw in him by becoming #messengersofhope, making a difference #onepersonatatime by kind words, a smile, listening to someone who feels overwhelmed or an #actoframdomkindness to show them that they are not alone. #thestarfishstory helped to illustrate this…with thousands of starfish who would die when the sun got high, a boy who was throwing them back into the ocean was told he couldn’t make a difference, to which he threw another back and replied, “I made a difference to that one!” #luke2v22to40 (at Ripon College Cuddesdon)
