Author and speaker Catherine McNiel talks about her book Fearing Bravely: Risking Love for our Neighbors, Strangers, and Enemies, helping us see how love can drive out our fear, and reclaim the transformative power of love for the sake of our neighbors, the strangers among us, and even our enemies.
