A light in the dark

There’s a saying attributed to George Iles, “Hope is faith holding out its hand in the dark.” A large part of humanity today is being given the opportunity to hold out its hand in the face of many challenges. For the Eurozone, the need to stabilize economies in several member nations is demanding profound changes to how this organization of states operates. 

Situations in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Syria, and Iran continue to look intractable. Instability in Nigeria and some other African nations is worrisome. The uncertainty and polarization in American politics as the presidential election heats up is not encouraging either. 

These and other issues, could seem like an argument for hopelessness, but there is another way—the way of hope, not a blind hope but hope based on the spiritual knowledge that divine Love is there and that spiritual progress is inevitable.
