What are you afraid of? We are all afraid of something, we all have something we fear, don’t we?
According to research the top ten things we fear are:
- Spiders (48% of women and 12% of men fear spiders)
- Crowded spaces
- Thunder & Lightning
- Small Spaces
- Holes (huh?)Are any of these things you fear?
Many of us have fears and we aren’t afraid to admit them, we’ll even joke about it. But some of us have fears that we hide and are ashamed to admit, even to ourselves. Maybe your fear didn’t make the top ten, but that doesn’t diminish the power that it has in your life.
This weekend we are continuing our “Honest to God” series and we’ll be talking about fear. Our Chaplain Mandy Ralph will be speaking about the fears we have and the power that is broken when we are honest with God about our fears.
I wonder what might happen if we admitted those hidden fears to ourselves and to God? I hope you’ll come this Sunday and discover how to be honest to God with your fears.
