Thursdays, 6am, New study starting August 15
“It’s better than it looks” by Gregg Easterbrook
Do you worry about the future?  Does the steady media gloom prompt visions of the sky falling?  Do all these seem threatening:  government, culture, drugs, terrorism, hunger, climate, population, pollution, inequality, racism, sexism, dictators, nuclear weapons, globalism, KU football,….Are prominent politicians leading us to despair?  If you prefer facts on these matters, you will appreciate Easterbrook’s exposition on why we should be optimistic in this age of pessimism.  He argues that “at no juncture in American history were people better off than they were in 2016,” and he marshals comprehensive data to prove his assertions.  Besides the improvements in positive things he also describes the reductions in the negatives.

Fridays, 6am, Parlor
Hosted by Troy Heckart
All men are invited to attend this weekly video bible study to discover how the Bible is relevant to your everyday experiences

7:45am, Worship Center
