Anxiety in our Lives and our Politics

106 Dirksen Senate Office Building

Anxiety seeps into everything–into our own individual lives, relationships, and even our politics. As Christians, how might a transformed view of anxiety change the way we participate in politics? Curtis Chang demonstrates how anxiety is not a sin that should be prayed away, but how it is an opportunity to invite God into our individual and political lives in new and exciting ways.

If you would like to learn more about how Christians are invited to experience anxiety differently, you can pre-purchase Curtis's upcoming book, The Anxiety Opportunity: How Worry is the Doorway to Your Best Self (May 15 release date).
