Anxiety is a universal condition...
During this pandemic, even those who don't consider themselves "anxious people" have felt fear and worry around health, finances, politics, race, or some other life disruption.
Yet, conventional Christian culture can make us think that we shouldn't feel anxious, or that we're just supposed to "pray it away." And secular culture also views anxiety as a problematic condition to manage or medicate.
This series presents a surprising Gospel truth: that anxiety is a powerful opportunity to grow as followers of Jesus.We show you how to take spiritual advantage of your fears and worries. You will learn to encounter Jesus through your anxiety with the help of Scripture, physical practices, nature, prayer, and new self-understandings.
