Listen to some of his sermons from St John the Baptist in Beaverton, Oregon

"Much of our anxiety in life stems from the fact that we would like to have people and things around us change so that we can feel happy or be more at peace. The reality is that our stress and anxiety will only begin to diminish when we direct our efforts inward, and begin to focus on what we can change, which is the way we see and understand our self and our self in relation with others." (from his page on the Northwest Psychological Center site.)
