We live in a world climate of fear, distrust, insecurity and wariness towards everyone. It is reflected in our political decisions, our economic choices, even in our prayer and daily relationships. The opposite of fear is boldness of spirit or daring trust, the gift given to us at confirmation: fear of the Lord. It is the imaginative creative work of bridge building and reaching across divides and leaping in faith, probing into mystery and the unknown. It is a gift and a discipline, bound to the gift of prophecy, and it takes practice—alone
and in concert with others. Come, and practice being bold, sharpening the edge of your prophetic eye, and knowing where to stand and how to leap in order to get there gracefully. Come, cast out fear! No registration is necessary. Free-will offerings are greatly appreciated.
