This Week in Church: Knowing the Right Words and Naming Your Fears

Welcome to the series wherein I share my take-aways from church. The things that, I think, are beneficial to all of us to know or think about, whether or not we believe in any church-related things.

I think that church can teach things that are beneficial to everyone, whether or not we believe in church-related things.

This week in church we talked about knowing the words versus feeling them.

Sometimes, you know exactly what you're supposed to say in a given situation. You can pass for fitting in, for being okay, for being on the right side. But you don't actually feel it. Then you have a choice: will you say the right words, or will you speak authentically?

This week in church we talked about naming our fear and doubt.

If for no other reason than the fact that problems seem a lot bigger and a lot more unwieldy when they are unnamed. It's sort of like how it feels like your to do list is unmanageable while it swirls around in your brain. If you write it down, it often turns out to be a lot more doable than it seemed.

What scares you? What do you doubt? If you name it, you can face it.
