8. Writing in his book, "Being the Body," Colson said that there has come a time for hope to triumph. "If faith is at war with fear, if catastrophe can turn from death to resurrection, if hope can triumph over despair … if there was ever a time for the church to be the church, it is now."

9. "As Christians, we have no reason to lack hope. Christ has shown the trustworthiness of God and of His Word."
