Faith: Facing Fear, Moving On
Seeing life as a ministry is the freedom assented to by those slave bards who sang, “And before I’ll be a slave. I’ll be buried in my grave, And go home to my Lord and be free.” To be free is to be open to possibilities, change, and responsibility for ourselves, our communities, and our ecology. True freedom is the ability to share a sense of liberation with others. True freedom can only be realized when one experiences a sense of salvation in the spiritual, physical, mental, emotional, communal, and economic facets of daily life. A faithful life of freedom does not negate the reality of fear, but does provide the tools and means for transcending the fear and making a difference.
