The word hope is one used when we desire something but do so with uncertainty. Merriam-Webster defines to hope as "to want something to happen or to be true and think that it could happen or be true." The Biblical concept of hope, however, is defined with a certainty we lack. The Book of Hebrew says, "Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance of what we do not see." In "Hope: An Exhibit of Uncertain Faith" women of faith in New York City visually work out the challenges and persistence of hope in the face of doubt. Curated by Christina Young.
