Everyone knows what it feels like to be overwhelmed. Those who struggle with trauma, anxiety, depression, or other mental health conditions know the experience quite intimately. In such moments, easy sayings of Christian hope and assurance often provide thin refuge against the abyss of panic and meaninglessness. The ancient scriptural writers imagined the chaos we experience in life as an unfathomably deep, dark water— a rushing, raging sea that could only be tamed by the Creator who made it. In this retreat, Dave Nienhuis will lead us through an exploration of the scriptural Deep to see what it might teach us about how God walks with us through seasons of chaos and despair.
