Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage.
If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy.
– – Dale Carnegie
Does life seem especially busy right now? Rejoice and be glad… At least you are not sitting around sweating something out. Pray for the gifts of courage and confidence and enough activity to engender them! Happy Halloween!
► Thanks to Dr. John Mojzisek for leading a wonderful webinar on pastoral care about Bullies, Victims and Bystanders last week and to all those who participated. The session was digitally taped and is available for your review as is the power-point used for the presentation.
