Being Wrong, Having Hope & Faith

November 19, 2019

“I thought I was wrong about everything,” writes Austin Kleon.

“But I was wrong about that, too,” he concludes in his book Keep Going. That line comes in chapter 7, which is itself titled “You Are Allowed to Change Your Mind.” Good reminder.

One of my favorite living artists for several reasons is Gerhard Richter, who has said, “Art is the highest form of hope.”

Long ago, someone wrote, “The fundamental fact of existence is that trust in God, faith, is the firm foundation under everything that makes life worth living. It’s our handle on what we can’t see.” That’s Hebrews 11:1.

When I weave together what Kleon, Richter, and Hebrews say, I’m left standing on some optimistic ground. And it feels solid.
