Stress: Discernment/Endurance

By now, all of us have probably felt stress in our lives at some point or another. Some stress can actually be “healthy” and provide benefits for us long term. However, the opposite is true when we are in distress. The Yerkes-Dodson Scale helps us visualize that performance increases with physiological or mental arousal, but only up to a certain point (when performance begins to decline).

How do you tend to handle stress? As you can imagine, there are both healthy and unhealthy ways to cope with stressful situations. Rather than overdoing and over committing, we encourage you to surrender (1 Peter 5:7), share (Galatians 6: 2), and shoulder (Hebrews 6:15) your anxieties and worries.

Let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Hebrews 12:12 

Feel free to print off this bookmark as a reminder on how to endure during hardships, handle anxiety, and lean on faith.

 


C.S. Lewis Is Coming to Brown!

C.S. Lewis Onstage: The Most Reluctant Convert

The Brown C.S. Lewis Inklings Society is excited to work with the Fellowship of Performing Arts to bring "The Most Reluctant Convert" to Brown University's Campus. Using C.S. Lewis' own words, award-winning actor Max McLean brings the brilliant Oxford Don to life, taking us on his extraordinary journey from hard-boiled atheist to "the most reluctant convert in all England"...only to become the most influential Christian writer of the 20th century.

The play will take place on September 28 at 8pm in Salomon 101. Tickets are FREE and details on how to register and when to pick them up can be found here!
