Invitation loosens the grip of Fear
Fear grows strongest when we allow it to fester in a wordless darkness. To speak out fear to another begins to loosen the grip fear has on us. To make fear take form in speech is to name it as something that can be confronted not confronted alone but in the community of those willing to speak their fears aloud and thus begin to subdue them. The Psalms of lament allow us to give voice together to our fears and anxieties. Find a friend and speak out your fear in the area of invitation and then go on to invite someone to take a closer look at Christ and His church.
