Any Hope in Japan?

Today I found an old article written by Russell Board in World, January 28, 2006. He said:
Masahiro Yamada of Tokyo Gakugei University, author of the book "A Society Lacking in Hope", attributed the falling birthrate to a general lack of hope about the future. Polls show a gloomy outlook afflicting all age groups in Japan, despite growing prosperity.
It is deeply ironic that the society with the longest life expectancy in the history of the world lacks the courage and desire to give life to the next generation. Awash in material goods, Japan is sorely lacking in basic spiritual necessities: hope for the future, appreciation for the gift of life, and an understanding of its meaning and purpose.

So we continue to pray and share the Hope of the World--Jesus. dw
