In the tumultuous times we live in, chaos, violence, and hatred seem to be gaining ground. We wonder what the future holds. We have seen where nationalism and authoritarianism have taken countries in the past, and we hope and pray that history does not repeat itself here.
In times like these, we need guidance, and probably most of all, hope.
Hope often surprises us, and perhaps now it springs from the pages of an ancient and often misunderstood letter. Revelation is opaque and mysterious apocalyptic literature, terrifying, and at times inspiring. But the message written twenty centuries ago in a time of great distress was actually shared to uncover, or reveal, where our hope comes from.
