Be Real AND Make Hope

It is a huge danger to pretend that awful things do not happen.
But you need enough hope to keep going.
I am trying to make hope.
Flowers grow out of darkness.

Corita Kent —Word for the Day on Gratefulness.org, 25 Sep. 2011

2 Corinthians 4:13–5:1 is appointed for reading on Sunday, June 10, 2012. We will hear Paul talk about hope. When awful things happen how do you “make hope”?
