Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled, and do not let them be afraid. John 14:27
Finding Peace in the Midst of an Anxious Climate
It was not long ago when anxiety was primarily understood as a psychological problem requiring some sort of intervention. Now we are seeing massive change in the global culture, an increase in terrorist threats, and a volatile economic climate throughout the world. Younger people are concerned about their long term job prospects and seniors are wondering if they will outlive their financial resources. While many of us still experience psychological distress, a new kind of anxiety is washing over the planet, one that demands a fresh look at the shalom/peace that is provided by the triune God.
This day will combine teaching, reflection, prayer, silence, and art to explore these themes and to invite people into a space where they can find solace in the midst of disruption.
