Paul Grimmond
Our guest is Dean of Students at Sydney’s Moore Theological College Paul Grimmond.  Paul has battled with anxiety all his adult life, and has been quite open about this.  He wrote recently “‘Don’t be anxious about anything,’ Is that all God’s got to say?” Paul says ‘it’s difficult to differentiate between the anxiety that is a result of the fallenness of the world and the unhealthy anxiety that is a part of my sinful response to this broken world. Am I feeling anxious because I have a body that chemically over-reacts to threats, or am I feeling anxious because I have let sin take control? That’s not always an easy question to answer.  Paul shares shares his story with Dominic Steele and looks at what the bible has to say.
