The Cup of Encouragement


In ancient times, angels offered a cup of water to weary travelers

in desert mountains, to quench their thirst.

Today we have many deserts draining us

places and times desperate,

needing an angel to give us

just a glimpse

of hope.


And we can offer the cup.

Who will you
