Alright, I’m pumped because I have something special for you today. Over the next three episodes of the podcast, I’m going to do something different. Instead of having a guest and doing a typical interview, I want to share with you my lecture series on hope. These are deeply personal lectures, where I dive into my own struggles with hope and how hope lead me out of professional burnout and depression. I truly believe hope is a misunderstood virtue and I’m seeking to correct the error now.
This first lecture introduces the series and dives into the psychological research of hope. If you’re a regular listener of the show, you know that I love to integrate faith and counseling and you are about to get a full helping of that in this presentation and in the next two. Stay tuned, those will drop next week and the week after that.
A quick note: these lectures were delivered at Good Shepherd Catholic Church in Tallahassee, FL as their Lenten mission, but neither of those particulars takes away from the universal application of this message. I know that you’ll get something out of them! You don’t need to see the slides, but if you want to, a pdf version is available in the show notes.
