*Christian Parks is accompanying me again this summer. Throughout our time together, we will post brief snippets of our conversations.

 

J: How do you move forward?

 

C: I pass through lament and anger. I look injustice and hatred in the eye and declare there is another way. I look into myself and look into our world and proclaim there is a higher calling — a greater calling. I walk forward never forgetting what darkness can do, so I seek light. I seek a light beyond the world we have created. Orlando isn’t the first and sadly won’t be the last. I push toward hope. Then again, what is hope?

 

J: Hope is a direction. Love is the destination. Hope is love becoming flesh. There is no hope apart from such a love.

 

C: May we place our hope in a fleshy kind of love.

 

J: Though hope has been stretched, we will not despair. I trust the author and source of hope to guide our way.

 

Amen.
