Description

In this talk Eugene Peterson examines hope and contrasts it with some of hope's common distorted alternatives: control-based planning, presumptuous fantasy, and despairing escapism. Peterson offers practical wisdom for managing our disappointments and cultivating a freeing hope for the present as we live in the period between Christ's first coming and His second coming.
