(Watch Online)The Spirit is about to do something nobody expected!
(Watch Online) Whether or not we realize it we are all wondering what is wrong with the world and who will fix it? There are hundreds of suggestions but only one answer. Everything else will fail to diagnose the problem and fall short of providing a solution.
