How important it is to name our fears, to challenge the inner voices that are urging us to run away, or to hide, or to freeze and try to blend in with our surroundings until the trouble has gone by. When Jesus rises up to confront the storm, he offers us an example to imitate. Engage your deepest fears. Name them, confront them, push back at them.
-Br. David Vryhof, SSJE
