I think it is hope that lies at our hearts and hope that finally brings us all here.
Hope that in spite of all the devastating evidence to the contrary, the ground we stand on is holy ground because Christ walked here and walks here still.
Hope that we are known, each one of us, by name, and that out of the burning moments of our lives he will call us by our names to the lives he would have us live and the selves he would have us become.
Hope that into the secret grief and pain and bewilderment of each of us and of our world he will come at last to heal and to save.
Frederick Buechner, Secrets in the Dark: A Life in Sermons, “Hope”
Hope that we can become who we were meant to be – is there a higher hope?
The God of the universe offers it – is any hope more sure?
Grace and peace to you…

I discovered last weekend that their behavior had deteriorated since they were first published. I didn’t know what could have sent them down the wrong path – they seemed to be perfectly good pages at first. But it was corruption on the inside, a corrupt Blog Post block, that was their downfall.
I have now rebuilt them with the noble Query Loop block, an intense and complex fellow, but very able. I expect them to now live long lives free from corruption. I commend them to you.
