Jim Denison, PhD, of the Denison Forum’s The Daily Article, writes that nearly every headline in the news today (5/8/2024) is about something we wish was different but we feel powerless to change.  For example:

  • During a Holocaust memorial ceremony at the U.S. Capitol yesterday, President Joe Biden condemned a “ferocious surge of antisemitism in America and around the world” and pointed to “vicious propaganda on social media.”  He’s tragically right, but what can be done about this?
  • Miss USA gave up her crown, citing a need to protect her mental health.  One in five Americans lives with a mental illness, but 60 percent give a poor or failing grade to how such conditions are treated in our country.  As loneliness and depression continue to escalate, what can be done?
  • Ukraine says it foiled an alleged Russian plot to assassinate President Volodymyr Zelensky.  As Russia intensifies its attacks on Ukraine’s energy grid, what can be done to halt its offensive?

The good news is that no matter how hopeless we may feel in these chaotic days, Christians can embrace and share a hope the world can neither recreate nor destroy.

Dr. Denison discusses a two-step journey into what we can hope “for” and what we can hope “in.”
