It would appear that the human race has a great enemy. It is one that has pit us against one another; has driven us into division and war; has left us forsaken in poverty and famine and asks us to see the worst in each other–this adversary is fear. We’ve hurt each other, your children, in your name for fear’s sake.
May we remember that fear is not creative and thus is not of you. Fear of one another is unfit for the children of God, because in order to hold such a delusion in our mind, we must begin by fearing ourselves. Heal us. Amen.
