We spent a week this fall at WVU – Potomac State College and asked, “What gives you hope?”

I’m reminded of a recent interview I did with Shane Claiborne where he said, “If you want to be courageous, surround yourself with courageous people.” You could say the same for kindness. For generosity. Certainly, for hope.

It’s all contagious. It rubs off. Just as much as rancor and divisiveness is corrosive and discouraging, building bridges and looking for solutions is healing and hopeful.

Spend a few minutes with the stories below, or watch the short video compilation, then think about how you’re going to go out a spread a little hope this weekend.
