 'Fear Not!' for 'The Root of War Is Fear'
From Sojourners: Thomas Merton, many years ago and titled 'The Root of War Is Fear' (from New Seeds of Contemplation). Merton wrote: 'At the root of all war is fear: not so much the fear that men have of one another as the fear they have of everything. It is not merely that they do not trust one another; they do not even trust themselves. ... They cannot trust anything because they have ceased to believe in God.'" - by Timothy Seidel
