#163 希望 or ‘hope’ is a big part of the Christian message. Perhaps we don’t always have the answers but we do have #hope in a God of Love. I was looking at the meaning behind these Japanese characters for hope and the whilst the first character does not seem to be so profound the second character is made up of three smaller ones: #death, perished or dying; #moon; and #king. I feel like there is a resurrection message in there somewhere…death comes to us all, but what happens next? Where do we go and who do we meet? (at Ripon College Cuddesdon)
