in christ we are given hope
As we look ahead to a new year, we do it without fear of the future, or succumbing to despondency that things will never get better. In Christ we are given hope.
Desmond Tutu, the South African bishop who passed away Sunday at the age of 90, provides us with encouraging words along the lines of hope:
"I am always hopeful. A Christian is a prisoner of hope. What could have looked more hopeless than Good Friday? But then, at Easter, God says, “From this moment on, no situation is untransfigurable.” There is no situation from which God cannot extract good. Evil, death, oppression, injustice—these can never again have the last word, despite all appearances to the contrary."
