do is, we hold back because we are afraid of what happens as a result. If it looks like things will go easily for us, we will take a stand, but if there is any risk involved in standing up for what we know be right, we will play it safe. Our leadership locally and nationwide knew that: God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and a sound mind” (2 Timothy 1:7). Though we may never face what Esther did: don’t give in to fear. Humbly Submitted, Bonnie Henderson, Chaplain
