How the Old Testament Made Me an Optimist: From Doom and Gloom to Looking Forward with Hope (Ian Cox)

“I used to be a full blown pessimist. However, the more I’ve studied about freedom and the worse the crisis has become, the more of an optimist I’ve become. We are in hard times and facing great struggles, there are definitely more to come. I don’t believe optimism means hard things won’t happen. It means we keep a proper focus, maintain a proper mindset, and continue proper actions.”

Come and dig into the definitive steps of a crisis. Discuss the nature of humanity and learn the indomitable power of personal mission and purpose.
