Welcome back to Nate 90! My name is Nate Bate and I will be your 90 second host!

Some of the most fascinating things to explore are world-changing moments

Or…what I am calling hinge points.

Currently we are in the middle of a hinge point – the COVID-19 pandemic. Over the last year the world has changed, and we will look back to 2020 as a world-changing year.

Another recent hinge point that comes to mind is 911. The world changed after 911. The thing about 911 was that we really didn’t see it coming. And that is the way some hinge points are. They come suddenly and unexpectedly.

Not all hinge points are unexpected though... Some hinge points are talked about for years, and then suddenly they happen. One example of this is the unity of the country I reside in – the United States. Over the last several years, the divide in my country has gotten deeper and deeper.

How deep will it go before we experience a major hinge point in our country? Are we in the middle of a hinge point and just can’t fully see it?

What hinge points do you recognize in your own life? How did you handle them? How can you handle them better? What is your source of safety in these times?
