Message from the Bishop of Ely for the Lent Challenge 2021 Hope and a Future

Dear Friends,

Over the last year, lots of things have changed – what we can do, who we can see, where we can go, and how we learn. We have planned and looked forward to things that haven’t happened, and we have had to become used to dealing with a lot of uncertainty. Now, as many more people are being vaccinated against Covid-19, we hope for a future in which we can overcome the challenges of this virus. The commitment of so many especially young people to combatting the climate crisis gives hope for the future of creation. The commitment of people across the world to racial justice offers hope for a world where everyone is valued equally as part of that good creation.

Here in our Diocese of Ely, we have a vision of people fully alive. Hope is about believing that life in all its fullness – in all the ways the world is beautiful and amazing – really is possible. Christians believe that hope is possible because of Jesus, and because he came among us as light in the darkness and then defeated the darkness when he rose from the dead. Hope is living into that beautiful and amazing future, and making it true now, in our own lives, and families, and schools, and communities.

In this challenge, I invite you to think about your hopes; to name your hopes and how that hope can make a difference. I invite you to dream out loud together about the beautiful, amazing fullness of life you want to see.

At the inauguration of President Biden and Vice-President Harris on 20 January, the poet Amanda Gorman said this:

When day comes, we step out of the shade, aflame and unafraid.
The new dawn blooms as we free it.
For there is always light,
if only we’re brave enough to see it.
If only we’re brave enough to be it.

This Lent Challenge is a challenge to be brave in hope – to be brave enough to see the light and to be the light. I hope you enjoy that challenge, and I can’t wait to find out all about your hopes and dreams for the future.

Will you take the Challenge?

We hope you will join us as we make a pathway to the future together.
