Rhett Smith shared a very powerful presentation for Inclusion Fusion 2012 in which he examined how our views on anxiety often exclude those struggling with it from our church communities…along with the ways in which God uses our anxiety for good-as a tool that pulls us closer to God.
Rhett is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in private practice in Plano, TX. In addition to his private practice, He is on staff of The Hideaway Experience, which is a 4-day marriage intensive in Amarillo, TX, and is the author of The Anxious Christian: Can God Use Your Anxiety for Good? (Moody, 2012), and the coming book, What It Means to be a Man: God’s Design for Us in a World Full of Extremes (Moody, 2013).
Here’s Rhett’s Inclusion Fusion 2012 video…Reframing Anxiety: The Inclusion of Anxiety in our Church Communities.
