:Hope. Everybody needs it. Everybody wants it. Nobody gets it.These days hope seems as hard to come by as it is to explain or understand. Hope is an elusive virtue, and in our flailing to grasp it we find ourselves instead clinging to lesser substitutes. From self-medication to lazy clich s, we apply these balms to our pain and experience little to no comfort. What has happened to our hope?Mark Oestreicher gets it. Through hard-wrought experience and reflection from his own trip into a spiritual desert, he helps us understand the elusive nature of hope: where it comes from, how we come upon it, how we lose sight of it, how we come back to it and how we hang on to it against all hope. From there he offers a fresh perspective on hope, that virtue that God carries to us even as he carries us. Read Hopecasting and discover a good God casting Hope your way.
