Often, anxiety and worry can seem like a natural part of life, especially during times of uncertainty. When worry attempts to haunt us, it’s important to remember that as children of God who are redeemed through Jesus Christ, we have certain promises, including hope and a future (Jer. 29:11). God also promises to finish what he started in us (Hebrews 138:8) and lets us know that everything will work together for our good (Rom. 8:28). This week, our founder Natasha T. Brown shared a message about God’s great promise of “perfection” that will help remedy worry and anxiety. Watch it below, and share your thoughts.
So many of us have been deeply grieved by the results of the recent Presidential Election. Regardless of whom you voted for and the outcome, the process was emotional and heartbreaking. This recent election proved that we are in fact a nation that is still deeply divided. It illuminated the fears, anxieties, racism, bigotry and pain that exist in our society. On Wednesday morning, when we awoke to a new president many women were angry, Muslims were uncertain, and African-Americans felt like time would move backwards and the policies-freedom and equality that many have fought for would be revoked.
