We know Jesus tells us, “Do not be afraid,” but with everything going on in the world, how is it possible not to be anxious? In this five-week study based on his book Unafraid, Adam Hamilton explores the worries and fears most of us experience. Your small group can learn to identify fears and discover practical steps for overcoming them…all in the light of Scripture and a faith that promises again and again that we can live with courage and hope.
In video Session 1 titled Understanding and Countering Fear, Adam Hamilton introduces us to a discussion group made up of Carlos, Ginger, and Marie, three people who face fears just as we all do. He introduces the subject of fear—how it is useful and how it can become a burden—and discusses fears of each group member. Afterward he talks with a neuroscientist, Dr. David Zald of Vanderbilt University, and asks how our brains play a role in how we experience fear.
