“christian hope cannot cling rigidly to the past and the given and ally itself with the utopia of the status quo. rather, it is itself summoned and empowered to creative transformation of reality, for it has hope of the whole of reality. finally, the believing hope will itself provide inexhaustible resources for the creative, inventive imagination of love. it constantly provokes and produces thinking of an anticipatory kind in love to man and the world, in order to give shape to the newly dawning possibilities in the light of the promised future, in order as far as possible to create here the best that is possible, because what is promised is within the bounds of possibility.”
i barely have time to keep up with this blog, yet i have started a second blog, hope in action, with the purpose of experimenting with what moltmann is talking about.
no by any stretch of the means do i know how to live compassionately and with justice in mind. molly and i are trying to figure these things out and what practical choices we need to make.
so take a look at the blog, and maybe it will get you thinking about the same things. or at least help us in our journey
