Each of us has, at some point, felt anxiety and worry over some aspect of our personal interactions. Whether it is friends, relatives, colleagues, or strangers with whom we interact, fears of looking foolish for sharing who we are, or our fears of being rejected for intruding too much into the lives of others translates to inaction. We are called, however, to be people of action. We are called to “do to others what we would have them do to us” (Matthew 7:12).
As October begins we also begin a new quarterly theme, “Love Never Fails.” This month we will focus on what it means to intentionally insert our mandate to love one another into our daily interactions and move beyond our comfort zones.
