Dangerous Hope

Creation is at risk. Enormous changes are needed, but many forces of resistance stand in the way. It can be dangerous to hope—as the people who followed Jesus learned, long ago. They welcomed him into Jerusalem with joyful hope on Palm Sunday and witnessed his crucifixion a few days later. What forces of resistance killed Jesus? What “crucifying powers” are putting creation at risk today? How do we grapple with resistance as we seek to courageously participate in creating a just and sustainable world now?
