inbox of hope

this week our inbox has been full and busy but i recognized how much of it was overflowing with good stuff.  we've had great news from many directions about the community garden i've been working on - a grant for $7,000 and additional partnerships in the city - it is a great work in progress.  also, there's been news of work my father and his church in north georgia have been doing to gather furniture and material support for refugees that is much-needed here in lexington.  through email i read of creation care meetings and green loans.  i closed down the computer one morning at pat's coffee shop and i felt the lightness of hope from these good things.  i made a point of walking home via the future site of the 3rd st community garden and i marveled at what god is accomplishing in our midst.  rarely do i find such joy from email.
