    One life can change so much: with each YES, we give Christ a chance to enter the world and let the light of God shine amidst the darkness.
    Reflect: What is God giving you the chance to say YES to today?
    Please share your thoughts.

    "If it all depends on me"
    "there is no hope if it all depends on me."
    How often we say "Let go and Let God" but how difficult it acutally is to live that!
    Nothing can stand in the way of God if we respond generously to his call to love one another as he loved us.
    Question: How can you as a member of this parish community respond to God's call to help carry someone else's cross?
    Please share your thoughts!

    "Live Differently"
    We live in an age of challenge, but is is truly a time of beautiful hope.
    The fount of hope flows in many different life-giving (gift and talent sharing) streams.
    Question: How can your gifts and talents serve the church and humanking?
    Please share!

    "Expect the Impossible"

    "The triumph of hope." Hope is not merely a wish that something good might happen - it is the firm confidence and desire that the promises of God will be fulfilled.
