Anxiety—and the deep peace that comes from God

The Christian Science Monitor

Anxiety has many faces. It may appear as despair, as loneliness, as a nagging emptiness lurking at the dark borders of thought. Indeed, our modern age has been called the Age of Anxiety, and some see it as an age in which God has grown silent or even died.

Behind this very modern anxiety is an old fear, perhaps the most basic fear of all—the fear of human nothingness, of nonbeing and death. These other feelings—the anxiety, the loneliness, the terrible emptiness of human life—are masks of the one great fear that torments mortal man.
