Plenary speaker Rev. Kurt Reinhardt addressed the following questions during his plenary session. What are some of the causes of human hope and why does it always fail? What’s the difference between “I hope?” and “I hope.” Who alone can turn “I hope?” into “I hope.” How does my past give me hope of a future? How does hope of a future give me hope in the present? How does God use the trials of life to build up genuine hope in me? Why should all the trouble in the world cause me to get my hopes up?
