24 May Hope in a Galaxy Far, Far, Away (and in your home too…)
If you are like me, you find great inspiration in movies. I was especially inspired by the new Star Wars movie, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. In Rogue One, hope was the catalyst that gave our intergalactic heroine, Jyn Erso, the courage to stand against Darth Vader and the indecision of her own rebellion forces. In facing what seems to be a hopeless situation, Jyn says, “Rebellions are built on hope”.
Certainly, the rebellion of love that continues to be Christ’s ministry is built on hope. In John 16: 32-33, Jesus says,
“Behold, the hour is coming and has arrived when each of you will be scattered to his own home and you will leave me alone. But I am not alone, because the Father is with me. I have told you this so that you might have peace in me. In the world you will have trouble, but take courage, I have conquered the world.”
Perhaps you feel scattered. Do you have a parent, or loved one who lives in the Washington DC area, and you live too far away to care for them? Perhaps you live locally, but feel alone in your caring giving. Like Jesus, you are not alone. Just like our Father was with Jesus, ACCfamily is here for you. We are your hope, giving you fresh energy to carry on.
Jyn also knew that hope is not a strategy. Hope needs a strategy that is understandable and doable. Let us help you find a care strategy that embraces your hopes with our compassionate care. One of our nurses would be more than happy to come visit, free of charge.
You may not think you are as courageous as an intergalactic heroine facing the Death Star, but, we think you are! Let us be a part of your forces for hope. We can help you.
