Boast in the hope

“How do you win a war against sad souls who imagine murder as an easy and glorious way to redeem a failing life?” Jonathan Kay asks in a May 27, 2017, National Post blog, in response to suicide bombings. Kay suggests a society with no sense of life after death, a society that can do no better than pile up flowers and teddy bears at terrorist sites and gather funds to memorialize people who’ve died, almost inherently encourages self-destruction.

Boast in the hope

Psalm 90

2016 07 22 - hymnO God, our help in ages past,
Our hope for years to come,
Our shelter from the stormy blast,
And our eternal home!

Before the hills in order stood,
Or earth received her frame,
From everlasting Thou art God,
To endless years the same.

O God our help in ages past,
Our hope for years to come,
Be Thou our guide while life shall last,
And our eternal home.

– From Psalm 90, by Isaac Watts
