What Have You Got to Be Afraid Of?

This coming Sunday, I’m preaching on Luke 1:26-38 with a focus on the words of “Do not be afraid,” spoken to Mary by the angel Gabriel. I’m trying to put together an almost-exhaustive list of things we’re afraid of. You can help by dropping me a line at I’ll share the fears in the sermon, but keep the names of those they came from confidential.

Next Sunday’s Sermon

Hopefully, I won’t come to regret sharing this, but I’m really looking forward to this Sunday’s sermon. I plan to preach on Jeremiah 32:1-15. I believe this is one of the greatest passages on divine and human faithfulness found in the Old Testament, but it takes a little unpacking before one can understand the full scope of what is going on.
