do not be afraid

“Do not be afraid. We live in a time when this biblical refrain cannot be repeated too often. … Among all the things the church has to say to the world today, perhaps this is the most important. … The path out of fear is not power but trust, not strength but vulnerability before God. … Although we may be experiencing a heightened level of fear and insecurity, the truth is that our world is no more dangerous now than 50 years ago, 100 years ago, or 1,000 years ago.”

Following Jesus in a Culture Full of Fear by Scott Bader-Saye (Brazos Press, 2007), pp.11-12,15
