Fear of the Other:  No Fear in Love

by William H. Willimon

Fear of the Other is a subject whose time has come given the divided nature of relationships in the church and world today.  Rooted in the New Testament Understanding of Gentile outsiders grafted into the covenant community, this study invites readers to a God who comes to us again and again through so-called outsiders, strangers, immigrants, and those without status.  I John 4:18-21 will be our focus as we:

  • Identify the Other in our midst,
  • Train our fears while seeking information and relationship with those we fear,
  • Renew our commitment to embracing the Other in obedience to God’s instruction, and
  • Work to make our local church more welcoming of the Other.

May we discover the courage to think like Christians and grace to act like Jesus.
