THE END OF THE BEGINNING

For one chapter I’ve done my best to “sell” you on what it means to do A Day of Hope—to tell you a little bit about why you might want to do A Day of Hope in your community.  I must come clean and tell you my hope is that you will lead a project similar to A Day of Hope in your community.  Your project won’t look exactly like ours.  Every single person is different (that’s what makes human beings so beautiful), so your project will naturally look, feel, and taste differently.  But it’s definitely my hope and prayer that after reading the rest of this book you’ll desire to lead A Day of Hope in your community.

Now that I’ve given you lots of personal stories and insights on why I think it’s good to do A Day of Hope, let’s dig into what A Day of Hope actually looks like.
