Tuesday Lectionary Leanings: High Anxiety Edition
Lessons for the coming Sunday are here .
I'll admit it; I'm a "high anxiety," nail-biting, finger-twiddling person whose nerves are set off by everything from left-hand turns to work stress to watching crises du jour on CNN.
Some of us do ministry in anxious congregations -- congregations dealing with change or interpersonal frictions or local stressors.
Sometimes our anxiety springs from forces beyond our control. Sometimes it's the kind of self-induced anxiety borne of our fast-paced, multitasking, distracting, life-devouring lifestyles and mindsets.
What is the word to us anxious folk this coming Sunday? Here's your opportunity to ponder and discuss.
