The Ebb and Flow of Faith
I have heard it said often that fear and faith cannot live together. It appears to be a local saying, as I did not hear it until I moved to Kankakee County, Ill. I got sober in Reading, Pa., but when I returned to Illinois, I frequented a certain clubhouse. In those four-to-five years in Reading, I did not hear this expression ever. Importantly, my experience is that fear and faith can live in the same person.
