Connecting with Culture
Our blog reflecting on weekly news, trends, innovation, and the arts...
Sounds good, right? But what does it really mean for us when we’re exhausted – particularly after the pandemic?
From Zoom fatigue and interminable NHS waiting lists, to work burnout and debilitating loneliness, we all have plenty of reasons to feel weak right now. Often, our instinct is to hide that weakness.
But what if we embraced our human limitations and disabilities, our poor mental health, our struggles and our sickness, and leaned into God? In a world addicted to progress and strength, acknowledging how far we fall short is far more impactful than pretending to be perfect.
We need a better conversation about how to follow Jesus when times are tough – wise to the truth that our best witness in this post-pandemic world is not our strength, but instead a humble embrace of our weakness.
That’s what this Wisdom Lab is all about. Together, through honest dialogue, and talks by three mental health experts, we’ll be inspired to live more fruitfully right where we are, from a place of vulnerable trust in the God who has scars too.
Warning: Discussions of mental health issues including depression and anxiety.
Recorded on Zoom on 16 June 2022.
