Hope is in short supply today. The world is unstable, with terrorism and war looming large. If that isn’t enough to chill your hope, consider the current state of the economy. Or look at the smaller world of your own life: family problems, health problems, money problems; suffering in mind, body and spirit. And if things are going pretty well for you at the moment, just remember: none of us is getting out of this alive. Does it make sense to have hope in a world like ours? Can we have any kind of real personal hope even in the face of inevitable death?
