The Pastor's Heart
Anxiety and pastoral ministry with Paul Grimmond
Apr 24, 2018
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.
