Faith, hope, and love in the context of the one thing necessary do not disappoint because they rest in the absolute truth at the center of reality. Nothing can separate us from the Love that is God; not even times of despair when we lose faith, hope, and love; not even injustice, suffering, and death. God is faithful even when we can’t see it. (God’s love is stronger than death.) This is the stable foundation of faith, hope, and love. This is the message of hope we cannot afford to forget.
