Just returning from time with people in the dioceses of Joliet, IL and Winona, MN, I am struck by the way we can find the hope of Christ when we are with each other. In both groups, there were moments of serious conversation, but also giggles, smiles, and promises to stay connected in support of one another. How wonderful that now, through the availability of email, cell phones and blogs we are able to be a community of people, no matter how many miles or years of experience may separate us.
What brings you hope? How are you supported by another in ministry? How do you support others in ministry?
