Psychologists, psychiatrists, politicians and theologians may differ in their opinion on many things, But one thing they would all seem to agree on is the importance of hope.
“Human beings can live about forty days without food, about three days without water, about eight minutes without air…but only for one second without hope.”
Do join my co-host Andrew Horton and I as we discuss:
- Why hope in the true sense of the word is much more than wishful thinking, but instead a joyful expectation about the future.
- How we can view hope as “not the conviction that something will turn out well, but the certainty that something makes sense, regardless of how it turns out.” (Vaclav Havel)
- The dangers of basing my hope on a particular outcome that I want.
- How the attempted suicide of a friend taught me the dangers of a secular hope.
- 4 core beliefs in developing hope
- A Biblical perspective on hope.
- The forgotten part of the serenity prayer and what that teaches about hope.
- What to say to someone who is struggling to have hope about the future.
