Literally a metal device that prevents a ship or boat from drifting, the anchor came to represent a sailor's last resort in stormy weather, a symbol of well-grounded hope. In early Christianity, hope was an anchor for the soul, as Christ was an anchor in life. The anchor was a synonym for steadfastness, strength, tranquility, and faithfulness: all these qualities help us to weather the storms of life.
