This blog aims to show how hope, meaning, faith, and compassion are still very much alive in the world around us – in theology, nature, films, music, news items, literature, social media, our communities, our churches, our charities, and our everyday lives. The blog was runner-up for the Up-and-Coming Award at the Christian New Media Awards in 2013.
