2018 Forum Sessions

Afternoon Workshops

FOCL Talk 1: What Makes Us Anxious? And Is It Wrong?

What makes us anxious, worried, and afraid? Why do some people get more anxious than others? Is there normal and healthy anxiety? Is anxiety a sin? What does the Bible teach us about anxiety?

FOCL Talk 2: Extreme Forms of Anxiety

What about extreme forms of anxiety like panic attacks, phobias, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder? What is the cause of these disorders? Does Scripture address them in any way?


FOCL Talk 1: The Reality of Anxiety in a Fallen World: Biblical Wisdom

What did David, Jesus, and Paul teach us about anxiety, worry, and fear? Is the Biblical command “fear not” or “don’t be anxious” an adequate response? How do we put these verses in context of the whole Bible?

FOCL Talk 2: Common Grace Remedies for Anxiety

Are there psychological and medical therapies for anxiety that are helpful for both Christians and non-Christians? Is medication helpful? Can we call these “common grace remedies” gifts from God to a hurting world?
