Clearing out an overabundance of “flagged” emails for later reading, I just came across one of Seth Godin’s blogs from early this year (January 5th to be exact).  The title was “Is there a fear shortage,” to which – of course – he pointed to all of the sources that seem to be creating and capitalizing on fear itself.

At the end of the piece he made a plea for “hope mongering.”  So I looked up the word “monger” – which means to “sell, deal, or promote.” (A fishmonger is a purveyor of fish.)

As a Creator we are called to engage in hope mongering – to be a promoter and purveyor of hope.

Be a hope monger – the world is yearning for it!
