Anxiety: How the God of Peace Helps the Fearful
Nearly all of us have experienced anxiety at some point in our lives, and some battle it every day. How can we “be still” and “know God” (Psalm 46:10) in the midst of mounting fear or panic? How does the God of peace come near the fearful? This conference will provide rich biblical perspectives on anxiety and will highlight practical ways of facing this common struggle.
