Finding Peace in an Anxious World

July 15, 2020

A five part, in-depth
Spiritual Growth course sponsored by

Louisiana Conference United Methodist Women

Finding Peace in an Anxious World uses the book of Proverbs and “The Serenity Prayer” as a guide to help Christians find their way through anxiety, worry, and fear and move towards God’s peace that surpasses all understanding. The four chapters each focus on a different aspect of the prayer—serenity, acceptance, courage, and wisdom—and each concludes with a spiritual practice to help further develop the biblical ideal of peace in our lives, our families and our church.

Our hope is that through this five part, weekly course, we can address the tumultuous events of this summer and present a framework for how to approach a God who desires peace for the hearts of God’s people in times of anxiety. There will be no fee for this virtual course. You will be required to purchase your own book from Mission Resources.

Session Dates: Wednesdays: August 5, 12, 19, 26 and September 2 Time: 6:15 pm pre-class chat and Q & A time, then 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm.
