Theme: Breathe, Breathe Again
Venue: Woodcroft College
How stressed are you?
Everywhere you look, there are little things around to stress over. And if we let them, small worries can build into something bigger–commitments, sport, work and study, social media notifications, navigating friendships, family, and relationships.
And then there are the big things that often feel out of our control – natural disasters, war, poverty and violence.
It can be difficult to look beyond the many things that cause us stress, and just take time to breathe.
Some things don’t change that much. Jesus knew how worry can dominate life, and so called people to breathe again. “Do not worry,” Jesus says in his Sermon on the Mount (see Matthew 6:25-34). This reminds us to look beyond our everyday troubles, what we eat and wear, and trust in God to provide all we need.
So what should we do? There are other ways: praying, praising God, committing stuff to God who is far more able to deal with stuff than we could ever be. (Philippians 4:6-7)
The message is clear: do not worry, but seek peace in God.
We can take time to breathe. Breathe again.
