Some of you have probably already heard of the lovely Tending the Flame of Hope project, which started this past January and is slotted to run until January 2021. It was started as a response to all the unrest and misery going on in the world right now. As a simple act of devotion of lighting a candle every day to spark hope in those who participate, and perhaps to bring some light and hope to others as well.
Upon hearing about the project I was inspired to participate, but realistically it is not something that I can do every day. Instead, I have slotted three hours every nine days to light my own flame, to pray, just sit and try and find my own hope. It is a time of reflection, of healing and thinking of ways how I can bring more hope into the world.
Brighid, bringer of peace,
Keeper of the communal fire--
May your flame bring us healing and hope,
May its light shine through the darkest despair.
You can find out more about the Tending the Flame of Hope over at the projects Facebook page.
Blessings to you all,
