Hope is the promise that God is and always will be with us. Because of that promise, we can rest in the knowledge that we are of great value to God.

Wherever you go this month, you can be assured that you will encounter Christ there. Whoever you are with, whether with friend, stranger, or foe, you can be assured that the presence of Christ is with you and can transform any situation. To walk through life in this manner is to have hope indeed.

Remind the people around you today of the hope that comes with knowing Christ. Point towards the ways you see God’s reflection in the places and people around you.


This reflection is one of a series called El Peregrinaje or Pilgrimage. Each blog in this series offers meditations on words in Spanish and English and include brilliant photos of daily life taken during a month-long pilgrimage across El Salvador in September 2021 by Jordan Shive and Micaela Bueno. The meditations were written by Michelle Negron Bueno and Micaela Bueno and compiled in the 2022 Enlace calendar.

From the soothing sound of pattering rain to the knitting together of communities woven together in peace and God’s love, we hope you can join us in considering everyday things with a mind of worship. They hope that their words would allow you to marvel at the beauty of life while also reflecting on your own journey.
