O come, Desire of nations, bind
In one the hearts of humankind;
O bid our sad divisions cease,
And be for us our king of peace.
-from a 9th c. Latin hymn
Since earliest times, Christians have placed their hope in the Child of Bethlehem. Make time today to gather your hopes for our wounded and divided world. Lay them in the manger. Hum your favorite hymn for peace.
What are your hopes for the coming year?
