Kelly Clark says that despite the world’s problems, there are plenty of reasons for optimism.
Gee. It seems that, wherever I turn, good, decent people aren’t as optimistic as they could be. No doubt there are good reasons for this, but still…
I mean, I keep hearing about how the world is heading for all sorts of unspeakable evils, that the world is, in fact, an unspeakable evil, and that we all might as well, pretty much, throw in the towel because, as everyone knows, The End is Near.
... Yeah, in many ways, the world’s a mess.
But you don’t have to be and I don’t either. There is not one thing that can stop us from revelling in optimism. Jesus Christ deigned—and with love!—to be born a man, to establish His Church, to suffer death, to conquer death…all for you and for me.
