Thanks Patrick, that’s inspiring! I too am an evangelical optimist. I’m currently serving in mission in Peru and I’m excited about what God is doing here.

God Bless

When we see the world, in lots of mess, and many churches in various stagnant, or less-than-healthy-states, we can be overcome with pessimistic thoughts. But when we see and hear Jesus risen from the grave, speaking hope… and hear his earlier words in Scripture, and ponder their outworking of what his plan really involves… Who wouldn’t be optimistic?  Thanks Patrick! What a fine contribution your gathering of statistics has proven to be.
