“Father, make of me a crisis man. Bring those I contact to decision. Let me not be a milepost on a single road;
make me a fork
, that men must turn one way or another on facing Christ in me.” - Jim Elliot

Hope Springs Eternal

photography by Anthony

Hope humbly then; with trembling pinions soar;
Wait the great teacher Death, and God adore. 
 
What future bliss He gives not thee to know,
But gives that hope to be thy blessing now. 
 
Hope springs eternal in the human breast:
Man never is, but always to be, blest. 
 
The soul, uneasy and confin'd from home,
Rests and expatiates in a life to come. 
 
~ Alexander Pope, An Essay on Man, circa 1732-1734
