“Jesus cares for our troubles, but they don’t worry him.”

So says Alan Fadling, who joins host Steve Cuss on this episode of Being Human. Fadling is an author and the leader of Unhurried Living, a nonprofit that trains people to rest deeper, live fuller, and lead better. His latest book, The Non-Anxious Life, draws from spiritual formation and touches on systems theory as well.

Cuss and Fadling discuss the ways that anxiety is not just a personal dynamic but an organizational one. They consider what Dallas Willard had to say about anxiety and peace, how anxiety communicates that God is not there for us, and what it may look like to remember that Jesus is present with us. They talk about the differences in believing “I am anxiety” versus “I have anxiety.” And they consider how anxiety influences leadership, our sense of connection with Jesus, and our engagement with culture.

Tune in for an episode that sheds light on the way of peace.
