February comes and we wait. With the bare earth and short days, we wait for Spring. But there are signs of life and hope to notice. Birds like robins and blackbirds that have stayed through winter. Squirrels dart about foraging. The tips of bulb flowers break the soil surface. Many of us are anxious about the troubling events in the world and the recent political changes. But there is always hope if we look and notice. Kind words from people passing in the street. Community building events where we live. International emergency responses to natural disasters. At St Edmundsbury Cathedral we remain hopeful because God is with us. You are welcome to find hope here.
