Hope and love

"Hope and love belong together. Only those who hope with and for others can also love them ... Love's imagination, its creative impulse, lives on hope"

Pannenberg, W. Systematic theology, Grand Rapids, Mich.: Eerdmans, 3:182

I like this very much. It reminds me of something I read recently for a class, but I'm too lazy to look it up right now.

Sounds like Pannenberg is commenting on St. Paul's Hymn of Love (1 Cor 13). "[True-love] covers all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. True-love never fails. [...] But these three shall be remaining: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love."

Incidentally, where does Pannenberg stand on the Calv/Arm/Kath triangle? 'cause that quote sure sounds kath. {g} (I know I've said as much within, and from, kath theology.)
