Compiling data, weighing facts, and sorting out feelings through reason and logic will not transform people’s hearts or bring renewal. Hope, as described by the Christian tradition and pronounced by the poet-prophets of the Hebrew tradition, will challenge the claims of what we think we see. Hope opens the world beyond reason. Hope gives access to tensions and contradictions that disrupt our cleanly managed logic. Hope not only remembers but wonders and imagines and even proposes a new way forward.

I choose hope.
