Tag Archives: Hope
I may have lost some optimism in 2016 but I have not lost hope. I refuse to lose hope, but hope demands action.
I want to live as if simple, mustard-seed-sized acts of loving God by loving others can change the whole system. I want to look into the face of those around me and see the image of God in them especially the ones I have a hard time loving or the ones the world views as insignificant or unworthy of attention.
I have often said that throughout my life I want to say honestly that those who are closest to me would feel the most loved. In other words, I want to be like Arthur Schultz.
That’s the point of Easter. Hope is alive. Hope is real. If I really believe that, it will change the way I engage in this world.
I’m interested in a theology that is immersed in “nowness” – one tailored for being in the midst. I think the Bible has a lot more to say about God meeting us in our pain than it does about explaining it away.
