We live in a time full of fearful things including disease, social unrest, and personal tragedies. Some of us respond by running from our fears while others mask their fear with fighting and anger. However, Jesus told us that we should face our fears with courage! Author, theologian, and biblical ethicist Dr. Russell Moore will give us a vivid understanding of Gospel courage; but be warned, this is not a call to bold bravado and aggressive action – it’s a call to be crucified!
