People from every religion, every race, every period of history have dreamed of and longed for a healed world, a world of peace, a world of mutual sharing and prosperity. The whole earth longs for repair, yearns to be free, and waits upon salvation. I refuse to believe that all of those dreams are only meant to fade away. I believe that God has refused to let those dreams just die. With God, all things are possible in Christ the Lord. With God, there is no absurdity in hope. For hope, in its most exaggerated state, still has room to grow into the hope of God.
