Hope embraces the future while that future is still unwanted, distrusted, generally seen as a threat that will contaminate our way of life. While embracing the future is as yet a costly thing to do.
Hope is a prophetic action.
It refuses to bow to segregation. It takes its part in the ongoing reconciling of all things to one another and to God, which is being brought about with and in and by and for Christ Jesus.
Hope is the subversive work of love in the world.
And we are called to be hope-full...
...How will hope flow into me, through me, from me, here, today?
