    Excellent. Address your fears and the fears can be reduced.

    Now as for economic collapse it's what got me started. I thought 08/09 was it. My dad thought 2001 was it. I have given up predicting it. In fact I doubt it's my lifetime but who knows. OP said sooner. I first read about it in 83' and it was supposed to be in the 90's. People use the fear to sell goods don't forget that.

    being worried is good if you act on it to fix what is worrying you

    Now I am concerned and watchful

    sort of like I would be worried about a flat tire IF I did not have a spare... now I have a spare, I still do not want a flat but I am not worried about it

    Ain't that the truth.

    Follow what you believe but don't rely too much on outside sources. Some are just in it for the money.

    Action reduces anxiety.

    Vikingpreparedness did a good video on this very topic today. If anyone hasn't seen his channel he is worth checking out. Retired special forces that turned homesteader/prepper/pastor. Very sensible guy, while he is religious his videos are geared towards the secular crowd.

    Don't let the video title turn you off, he is using those examples in a sarcastic way.

    You and your Dad were correct . The economy collapsed and never fully recovered in some aspects ...... in the early 80's, the 90's, the 2000's and it is about to real soon again. The question is ....... when will we not be able to sustain on some fronts ...... the crash.

    Is it just me? Pastor Joe and I just do not click. I find him very un pastor like ... perhaps he is a better fit if he drops that part of his persona. And ... while I specialize in dry humor and sarcasm ...... his just does not resonate very well. Perhaps I could help him in this area?
