The Courage to Be

Paul Tillich, the great existential theologian of the 20th century, believed that human beings faced a set of anxieties which could only be met with deep, profound courage.  These anxieties included our knowledge of our own death, worry about our moral failings, and fear of meaninglessness.  To have courage in the face of these worries means not denial, but facing them and transforming them.  When we do this, our life has more meaning and joy.  We’ll explore what it means for us today to be courageous in anxious times.  This is a bring-a-friend Sunday, so please do!
