The Blessing Beyond Our Fears

Date: Sunday, October 16, 2016 10:30 am - 11:30 am

Sermon by Rev. Shawn Newton.

What are we so afraid of?
What are we so afraid of?
What are we so afraid of?
What are we so afraid of?
What are we so afraid of
What are we so afraid of?

It’s a question worth asking, again and again, shifting the emphasis from one word to the next until the answer becomes clear. And it’s a relevant question to ask, given that fear is tied to so much of what is — or at least feels — broken in our world right now.

Fear is, of course, a natural response to the threats we face. Yet, it’s what we do with the fear we feel that matters. Scientists tell us that “fight or flight” are the two options we, along with other animals, typically choose from. But what other options might we exercise? How might we learn to live guided by our faith instead of our fears?

I look forward to our taking up these questions together on Sunday.

In faith and love,
Shawn
