Religion tells us that to be accepted we must meet an unattainable standard of do’s and don’ts. This causes us to hide our true selves in order to find acceptance. Jesus came to dismantle this horrible cycle and made a way for us to authentically connect with others while being our authentic selves.
Every part of our life gives us something to fear. This is a dangerous world and there always seems to be something new to be afraid of. We can try to ignore, numb, or control our fear but that only makes things worse. There is a better way. A way that allows us to experience peace and confidence no matter what is coming at us.
