This week I shared some bleak projections for the trajectory of climate change. This is a reality we need to face up to – we can’t sugar coat the dire circumstances and challenges ahead.
At the same time, we need to cultivate hope, especially as people faith. G.K. Chesterton wrote in his work Heretics: “hope means hoping when things are hopeless, or it is no virtue at all.”
Reading this today has helped me realize that I can and should still cultivate hope even when confronting the seemingly hopeless state of affairs for our common home.
Today I ask that God increases hope in all of us and that this hope draws us closer to Him.
