Clergy Day - "Grace in an Age of Anxiety" led by David Zahl

Hardly a week seems to go by these days without some fresh headline about the increasing levels of anxiety and loneliness both in our pews and beyond them. What lies at the root of our current unease, spiritually-speaking, and how might the church respond? Put differently, how does the grace of God meet and address those who are suffering under the weight of excessive worry and “performancism”? Together, we will survey a few of the larger trends impacting our parishioners’ and neighbors’ mental health, and look at how the Christian faith can serve as a much-needed balm.
