Hope is the first move towards any dream, be it personal or communal. You have to be able to imagine the dream and have some sense of its possibility in order to start building it. Hope is a creative force in life, it stirs us to imagine possibilities, move towards beauty, and begin building beloved community.

What are you hoping for right now? What are you afraid to hope for? What might happen if you removed your own obstacles to hope and started dreaming your big dreams of the heart?

Rev. Jennifer Nordstrom is the Senior Minister for First Unitarian Society of Milwaukee, beginning Fall 2016. A native Wisconsinite, she previously served as minister for Third Unitarian Church in Chicago, Illinois. Active in issues of peace, climate justice, and racial justice, she is currently co-editing a book on environmental justice and Unitarian Universalism, forthcoming in 2017.
