LOOK FORWARD

Do you welcome the future or struggle against it?

It is in the forward look
that we are saved,
that life’s fullness overtakes us.

We are made to be dreamers,
strivers, imaginers, hopers.

It is in the vision of the ideal
that we live:
a promise to be fulfilled,
a community to be formed,
a Kingdom to come.

The horizon shapes present realities:
It is against the future that we may struggle
or welcome its promise today.
