What is your view of hope? Do you take a narrow view for the positive outcome of minor events in the near future based on favorable indicators? This is too narrow. What about things of major consequence that may be far in the future for which you have no current evidence that they will turn out the way you want? This takes hope to another level. Here it can only be based on an all-encompassing world view involving a benevolent supreme being. This is not as easy as the first case, but to have hope at this level places you in a realm of cosmic significance and makes you a participant in it.
