GREAT HOPE 170 25 MAY 1976
Jenkin Lloyd Jones wrote,
"You cannot put a great hope
into a small soul."
Now, we have read brother Jones'
columns in the newspaper for many
years, and admire them for their
moral tone and literary fiber.
But, we would like to offer an opposite
viewpoint to his statement above.
We believe most of us would be most
miserable of creatures, and life-long
small souls had not some person, through
written or spoken word, implanted within
our hearts...a great hope.
Perhaps this is the main reason Jesus Christ
always succeeded while other philosophers
and moral teacher failed. For only he can
deliver the goods...in every area of our
Joy in the midst of pain
Solace in the midst of sorrow
Patience in the midst of problems
Calmness in the midst of turmoil
Feasting in the midst of famine
Resurrection in the midst of death
Hope, always hope, for today, tomorrow,
