FACING FEAR WITH FAITH by Arthur Jones & Dolores Leckey +
Clarissa Pinkola Estes, Ph.D., author of Women Who Run with the Wolves, says:
"Facing Fear with Faith is a living beatitude: the authors offer a feast of healing words for the naked, hungry, and weary heart and soul. True medicine."
What does the reality of September 11, 2001 mean to us as Christians? Where does religious faith fit in? What does it do--what ought this tragedy to do to our life and work as Christians? Has September 11 jarred our faith, jolted us out of complacency, called on us to plumb our depths, required us to more clearly define our gifts and charisms? We seek succor and solace in prayer, sacred writings, quiet calm, keeping going, beauty, and life beyond death. Sometimes things happen and everything appears in a different light: life, love, hope, even relationships. Redefining the bedrock of our beliefs, finding meaning, requires the energy of a compassionate heart that wants to reach in, in order to reach out.
