“The sky is falling!” The world is coming to an end. Do you remember this imminent disaster story? Apocalypticism is part of the Christian story that unexamined becomes problematic and leaves us living a life in fear.
Fear. Such a pesky thing. It can be a positive and negative motivation. Over the years, we have experienced the negative results of perpetuating fear. In Luke 12:32, Jesus says, “Do not be afraid, little flock, for it is your Parent’s good pleasure to give you the realm.”
We live in days that capitalize upon our fear. Is that where you want to be?
I invite you to join us in person or on Zoom on Sunday at 10 am as I reflect upon Luke 12:32-40.
Be not afraid, you are loved!
Rev. Michael Cronin
