Back to the basics

You can go weeks without food. You can go days without water. You can go a few minutes without air. But you can't go one second without hope. You got to have hope to cope. And that's what our job is -- to build hope. During the next 90 days, people are going to be more open to the Gospel than in years. God uses trials to soften hearts. It is God's responsibility to make people receptive; it is our responsibility to sow the seed.  - Rick Warren addressing a rally of pastors in Baton Rouge
This is pretty basic stuff but states what Christians need to see as their job description and focus every day regardless of the situation.  The only true way to build hope is to love one another no matter what the circumstances.
