IC Week Four Title

By Dan Etheridge

Week four: Fear…

Fear is something that we have all felt at some point – and if we’re honest, it’s a feeling we can be ashamed of. Some of you will be particularly fearful with all that is going on with COVID-19 right now. You could be fearful about your own health, fearful for your family and friends, or even fearful for your future. So, get downloading and spend the next twenty minutes (see the note on the below if you’re not a big reader), getting inspired and encouraged by stories from our persecuted family who are facing up to fear, by choosing to stand firm in Jesus’ love.

We also know that during this global crisis our church family around the world are in need. The fear we are experiencing is being shared by Christians who are really struggling during this outbreak. In India, many Christians come from poorer communities. Being on lock-down means they can’t work, which means no money for rent or food. Along with fears around health, the fear of not being able to afford food and necessities is very real. And this is where we can help with what we have. Please check out the new coronavirus crisis appeal here, share the link and help your church family around the world. Thank you!
