I have a hope for God. We are constantly being challenged. Yet to truly know The Way in heart and mind is to live it in heart and mind. To love God and love others as self is The Way. Together, along this way, we all are both the other and the self. Along this way we can expect to be challenged because the world gives us every opportunity to choose another way to live. But our hope means that we journey on, along The Way until we get where we are destined to be with God. Until then, along The Way we expect to be defended and we expect to be upheld according to God’s mercy; according to God’s grace and according to God’s love.
