Freedom from fear of volunteering in prison
To share Christian Science with those in correctional institutions and help them witness to the power of Christ-healing is important work. But how does one have the courage to engage in this kind of outreach?
If we feel led to volunteer as a prison chaplain, but are hesitant because of fear, it’s helpful to ask ourselves, “Are these fearful thoughts from God, Mind, or are they an aggressive suggestion that I could lack safety, ability, or time?” Such fears can be eliminated if we prayerfully turn to our Father-Mother God and listen for divine Love’s plan for us to freely give, knowing that God doesn’t take us part of the way when our mission is to help and heal. When we serve Him, our success cannot be thwarted, because God never fails, and good is not overcome of evil.
