"The beauty of our struggle with anxiety is that our God reserves His most savory and attractive words for you."
– Ed Welch
About the Event
Anxiety and the God of Peace
We're all prone to anxiety. It's easy to understand why. We live in a world that is unstable and unpredictable. We care deeply about so much—our loved ones, our health, our careers—and yet we realize our inability to control any of it. An undercurrent of tension can ripple below the surface. Panic threatens to explode above the surface. Truly, anxiety can manifest itself in numerous ways, so how can we more deeply know the God of peace? He is a God who is near, so how can his voice become louder than our anxieties? How do his many promises settle into our hearts and lead us into trust and hope?
