The Sunday Bulletin is Here: Finding Courage


Finding the courage to do anything can be difficult. Trying new things can be scary. Traveling to new places can be scary. But most people push through their fear and find that they’ve enjoyed their new experience.

What about finding the courage to leave an abusive relationship? That’s probably the most difficult thing for anyone to do. Fear can cripple you.

Finding the courage to leave is one of the bravest things a person can do. Not only do you have to learn to be on your own, but you also have to learn to start your life over again. You have to learn to trust again. To love again.
