When things are anxious, when people are fearful, the natural reaction is to draw back, to circle the wagons and to protect one’s own. Christians are the exact opposite. When things are fearful that’s when we plunge forward into God’s future. That’s when we say: We believe that we are part of giving birth to this vision where brothers and sisters stand fast as part of the human family. The opportunity is now; the fullness of time is at hand.
