October/November 2018 Study: Unafraid, Living with Courage and Hope in Uncertain Times
Truth is, a mere handful of fears work for us–fear of stepping in front of a bus, for example, or not taking care of our health. But the vast majority–fear of others, of failure, of the future–have almost no basis in reality, yet tie us in knots and steal our peace of mind. These fears, experts say, are often vestiges of primitive ‘fight, flight, or freeze’ instincts that, mostly, no longer apply. Making matters worse, our hyper fractious era of hate media, divisive politics, and multiplying natural disasters wreak havoc on our state of mind, leaving us troubled and unhappy.
Fortunately there’s abundant good news. As trusted pastor and bestselling author Adam Hamilton shows in Unafraid, we can escape the echo chamber of anxiety and dread. With insight, intention and faith, we can learn to overcome what oppresses us, and live with courage and hope.
Drawing on fresh research, psychology, biblical principles, and his long experience shepherding a diverse faith community in Red State America, Hamilton helps readers untangle the knots of fear and truly embrace Jesus’s recurring counsel: “Do not be afraid.” He writes with generosity and intelligence for a wide audience in accessible language that will ring true to believer and unbeliever alike.
Now on Thursday nights, a place for men that connects, disciples, challenges, & transforms by the grace and love of Jesus. Don’t miss it! 6:30 – 8:00 p.m. at our Franklin First UMC Main Campus – Room A-115.
Their current study is “Victory In Spiritual Warfare” by Tony Evans.
“In this timely, unique exploration of spiritual warfare, Dr. Evans unveils a simple yet radical truth: every struggle and conflict faced in the physical realm has its root in the spiritual realm. With passion and clarity, Dr. Evans demystifies spiritual warfare so that readers can tackle challenges and obstacles with spiritual power and God’s authority”
Led by regular guys, attended by regular guys, all who want to make a radical difference.
