FENWAY PARK: HOME OF THE BOSTON RED SOX, MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL'S 2004 WORLD SERIES CHAMPIONS—and now a symbol of the improbable becoming reality. After 86 years of disappointment and heartbreak, the Sox finally won it all. They reeled off eight straight stunning victories, the first four against their arch-rivals, the New York Yankees. An object lesson for everyday life? Yes. The Sox's victory struck a universal chord, igniting shock waves beyond Boston and baseball. Because this team said No to despair and Yes to winning. And their history-making come-back can inspire hope in the heart of anyone who faces adversity. The spiritual lesson: Everyone can rebound from frustration and failure. Everyone can soar to the mountaintop of spiritual inspiration and find the courage and confidence to persevere against formidable odds. Everyone can skyrocket to victory. And it starts by saying Yes! to the promise of good that comes to each of us from God.
September 11, 2004. The third anniversary of the terrorist attacks in the United States. That day the two of us struck up a conversation about how to live with courage, hope, and confidence in this new world. For surely, the post-9/11 world is a new world—and it calls on deep spiritual resources to live without fear.
