In this painful time as a nation, there is one sure thing we can hold onto: the hope that is ours in Christ. In the midst of all that we are facing as a nation and as a world, we know who has the ultimate power. Let us affirm with Archbishop Desmond Tutu of South Africa:
We believe that goodness is stronger than evil;
love is stronger than hate;
light is stronger than darkness;
life is stronger than death;
victory is ours through Him who loved us.
In this time, hold onto family and friends and neighbors – and know that the One who conquered death itself holds onto us.
