Be Anxious For Nothing


I came across the "Keep Calm and Carry On" meme this morning and was immediately inspired. Several things struck a chord: I love learning about WW2, I'm a big fan of all things British and I love the idea to use beautiful art to convey a much needed message in a time of great turmoil. After listening to the backstory of the piece, Paul's letter to the Philippian church came to mind - specifically chapter four verse six where he instructs them to not worry or be anxious about anything but to pray about everything. As the poster was intended to only be used if the nation was under great duress I can't think of a better message of comfort then to Keep Calm (do not be anxious) and Carry On (carry your burdens to One who cares for you.)
