Leaders of renown have used one ability to great effect – instilling hope.  Hope is a powerful agent of perseverance and improvement which stems from holding up an inspiring vision.  God designed humans with the unique ability to hope for something better in the physical and spiritual future – a better future pulls us through any present season of difficulty and uncertainty.  We should work to connect with common hopes people share – safety, autonomy, good health, satisfaction from productive work, whole relationships, better opportunities, greater justice, equity, and freedom.  Tap into themes of hope and draw people with you through challenging times.

“Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all the darkness.”  Desmond Tutu
