To Our Readers

I recently saw A brochure that had announced a photography exhibit presented a few years ago. The exhibit was titled "Through the Eyes of Hope: The Youth of Africa." In 1991 photographer Dana Fisher traveled for a year through Africa, capturing on film a remarkable vision of the young people there. One of the photographs in the brochure portrayed an African boy, in dark silhouette, with the light illuminating only the profile of his face. In that child's eyes there was a bright promise. Hope was unmistakable.

Looking at the photograph, I thought about how powerful and substantial the quality of hope actually is. Especially the hope that springs from a pure, childlike trust in God's provision for our lives. This is the kind of faith that puts one's hand in God's and humbly lets go of doubts and fears about the future. The kind of faith that knows how much God loves us and cares for us.
