Voice of the Day: William Faulkner

“We have to start teaching ourselves not to be afraid.” — William Faulkner

William Faulkner is not normally considered a particularly pious author, but I’m sharing this quote anyway. We who claim the name of Jesus Christ both die and rise again with him in our baptism. Through Christ, sin and death have been defeated. We have already died once. There is nothing else for us to fear. Let us teach ourselves not to be afraid.
