The May 17th sermon was outstanding! I especially enjoyed your section giving examples of "The hope that is within". I often think of Emily Dickinson's poem "Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul, And sings the tune without the words, and never stops at all." As you stated, hope is an absolutely vital part of our lives...at many times.
