Colorado Conversations: Managing Anxiety at Work
Thursday, Nov. 03 11:30 a.m.
The Christian’s call is to embody the way of Jesus by living a life of love, joy, and peace both within ourselves and in our service to the world. This call extends to all facets of our lives, including our workplaces. Far too often, however, the anxieties of the world hinder our capacity to fully live into this call. In particular, anxiety in the workplace interferes with our ability to be fully present and to love those around us (co-workers, supervisors, employees, customers, etc).
As followers of Jesus, we have a unique opportunity to serve our workplaces
by bringing the peace of Christ into our daily work.
How do we steward this opportunity?
Join Denver Institute for Faith and Work for our final Colorado Conversation of 2022, where we will discuss how to manage anxiety at work. We will hear from Brian Gray, Denver Institute’s VP of Formation and 5280 Fellowship Director, and Dr. Jessica Stern, a double board certified Diplomate to the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology in Child & Adolescent Psychiatry and General Psychiatry, and learn practical tools to bring the “peace that surpasses all understanding” to our work, even when we face the anxieties of the world.
What: Colorado Conversations – a highly-relational gathering focused on local issues and practical themes integrating our faith and work.
When: Thursday, 11:30 a.m. – 1 p.m.
Where: 8100 E Arapahoe Rd. #303, Centennial 80012
Details: Your $15 ticket includes a light lunch. (Monthly Partners attend for FREE)
Bring a friend for a great time of discussion and networking!
Brian is the VP of Formation here at DIFW and also leads our 5280 Fellowship program. Prior to landing at DIFW, he served in pastoral ministry for thirteen years and at Denver Seminary for four years. His vocation includes moving ideas out into life through relationships and conversation – whether that applies to God, work, the Church, good beer, or Liverpool Football Club. He married way out of his league, and spends most of his free-time being parented by his two daughters.
Dr. Stern is a double board-certified Diplomate to the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology in Child & Adolescent Psychiatry and General Psychiatry. She is committed to providing compassionate, comprehensive, evidence-based, and collaborative care to children, adolescents, and adults. Her training and professional experience emphasize the improved functioning and decreased suffering that psychotherapy can provide to individuals by increasing self-awareness, improving emotional regulation, increasing understanding of interactions with others and the world, and moving towards engaging in life in a way that feels more meaningful.
