Wild hopes!

A particularly inspiring excerpt from last week's Green Book readings:

"Do you have any wild hopes?
Or tame ones for that matter?
The possibility of acorns becoming towering oaks,
or caterpillars blossoming into butterflies?
Or that dawn will chase away might night fears?

"Wild hopes!

"That all creation will learn the dance of joy,
And all humanity might taste the wine of peace,
And that our loving God will become transparent through love.
'Recast the earth, oh, Lord,
and move our hearts with wild hopes!'"
-From Resurrection to Pentecost, by Robert F. Mornea
