The Legacy Centre Speaker Series with Dr. Randy Pardue


"Peace that Passes All Understanding" presented by Dr. Randy Pardue, Co-Founder and President of Trinity Medical Associates and VitalSigns Wellness


Most of us know the way to peace. To know Christ is to know peace. So then why does stress so often threaten to steal our peace on a daily basis?

God’s Word clearly says…

“Remain in me and I will remain in you...” John 15:4
But are we intentionally growing closer in our relationship with Him?

“Come to me, all who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me…” Matt. 11:28-29 
But do we actually surrender our anxious thoughts at His feet?

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.” Prov. 3:5-6
But do we really trust Him to take care of us when we don’t have all the answers?

After a year like 2020 – when our personal and professional lives have experienced a roller coaster of emotions, uncertainty, and loss – peace seems elusive, always just out of grasp. When this happens, stress and anxiety plague our thoughts and ability to function at our best... Most likely, our health takes a backseat… Our businesses and relationships suffer as we clamor for control… Ultimately, we can end up pushing people away and feeling lost and alone… Even feeling far from God.

Here’s the truth. You were not meant to live like that. 

The “peace of God, which surpasses all understanding” is a gift which God longs to give His children. Yet it’s a state that most of us experience infrequently or not at all. Our lives are harried and busy like Jesus’ friend Martha (Luke 10:38-42) who was “anxious and troubled about many things”. When she urges Jesus to tell Mary to help with serving, he gently rebukes her, “one thing is necessary, Mary has chosen the good portion which will not be taken away from her.” Mary was sitting at his feet as his disciple, learning to enter into His easy yoke. Like Mary, we can only know His perfect peace if we slow down enough to receive what He longs to share with us and then put it into practice as we lead and care for others. 

On Friday, March 12, Dr. Randy Pardue, a beloved local physician, business owner, and strong believer in the positive impact of holistic wellness, will share how you can overcome stress and find peace in the midst of your current reality in a God honoring way. 

Against the backdrop of this very difficult past year, we will walk through Philippians 4:2-9 and consider what it looks like to embrace peace with God and our neighbors and to experience His peace that passes understanding in our own hearts.
