Hope: out of the mouths of babes and sucklings

The Watoto children’s choir was in Abbotsford last night.

During the evening, they showed a video of the Watoto Children’s home in Uganda. One girl of 12 or 13 really, really moved me.

She was an orphan – parents dead of AIDs or violence. But she knows what hope is.

“Hope,” she said, “is knowing something you cannot see.”

Knowing something you cannot see. I think that’s the best definition of hope I’ve ever heard.
