Grace in Tension
December 1, 2021 @ 2:00 pm – 2:30 pm EST
We all face stress and tension in our daily lives. How we respond either diffuses or ignites it. If lit, we can feel stretched beyond our capabilities, wondering why our God of abundant goodness doesn’t remove the struggles we face.
Grace in Tension affirms that although God doesn’t create our tension, he does show up in the midst of it to lead us through. Centered on Jesus’ interactions with Martha and Mary in the gospels, we can follow the sisters’ transformative journeys through their own struggles. Reflecting on what transpires between Scripture verses, we see their initial tension become the catalyst that drives both Mary and Martha to the feet of Jesus — the perfect place to discover peace.
Author Claire McGarry joins us to talk about her new book and how to address the stress that arises in our own lives.
