May 31, 2016 – Faith & Society: The Cost of Fear

Season 9, Episode 22

Who’s Fearafraid of the big bad Wolf? On this episode of Friends Talking Faith with The Three Wise Guys we’ll discuss faith and fear. Are you one of those people who likes a good horror film? Or, are you the type that changes the channel, leaves the room, or covers your eyes and ears when a scary movie comes on? To get at the issue of fear, we’ll begin by talking with a husband and wife writing team, authors of, The Anatomy of Fear, Chris Vander Kaay & Kathleen Fernandez-Vander Kaay, they say there’s a faith and fear connection, can that be right? Also, we’ll explore the issue of fear from our various faith traditions, and ask the question, “is there a cost of fear?” Horror films, fear, and faith. That’s on this installment of Friends Talking Faith.

The Journey Continues

We’ve been doing it together for almost 15 years: talking and listening with each other as friends!  A Reform Rabbi, a Suni Imam, and a Congregational (UCC) Minister.  It has been a journey of ever deepening friendship and respect.  When you are friends first, then even when you disagree, you’re still friends.  It’s a model of interfaith relationship we believe is essential for people of faith, and those who claim no faith community at all.
