Episode 49 — “Hope in a Time of Pandemic”

Last week we looked a the many forms grief takes during this stressful time. It is real and it is punishing. But grief is not the last word. Even within the depths of our grief, hope beckons us forward. What is the basis of that hope? Dr. Epperly and I examine how an open future makes hope possible. Hope is grounded in God’s vision, undergirded by the loving presence of a God for whom the future is open, who has not determined what will be but nurtures our freedom and creativity to help enact a future in congruence with God’s vision. Hope provides no absolute guarantees, but is a pick and shovel virtue – creating along with God, first in our imagination, and then in our actions new realities.
