"to see with the eyes of faith"

“to see with the eyes of faith”

“Fear is so fundamental to the human condition that all the great spiritual traditions originate in an effort to overcome its effects on our lives. With different words, they all proclaim the same core message: Be not afraid.””

A quote from Parker Palmer’s book, The Courage to Teach, page 57
