‘Dear Friend of KNOM’ (October 2018)

Dear Friend of KNOM,

What could we accomplish if we weren’t afraid? Fear binds love in chains. Fear of failure, judgement, retribution, sacrifice, and uncertainty are all links in the chain of fear.

An inspired effort to set aside fear to work toward good changes the conversation from “I cannot” to “we can.” The effort is not reckless; it finds strength in community and hope. Western Alaskans daily meet fear with grace, fortitude, and solidarity that comes from God. When a faith community faces fear together, the links of the chain are destined to break.

Thank you for helping KNOM to unleash God’s love and hope.
