Flight from Fear, Pathway to a New Song

Andra Leininger recognized that fear is the great enemy of faith until appreciated as an invitation from God to move beyond the distraction of fearing rejection, failure, change or death. So she employed a renewal blog during her sabbatical to maintain contact with her congregation and enliven planned experiences in this congregation to parallel her journey. In the process, she and her congregation recovered their sight of God’s living presence and their voice in song and action praising God’s daily activity in their midst.
