Here is another AA heresy. One of the platitudes in AA is that “faith and fear cannot occupy the same place.” But it’s not true. We do people a disservice when we say that.
People of faith also have fear.
Moses had fear in the desert.
Jesus had awful fear; he sweated blood at Gethsemane.
Faith is not the absence of fear. Faith is doing the next sober thing even while feeling terrible, awful fear.
Lots more on faith and fear in "Out of the Woods--A Guide to Long-term Recovery" published by Central Recovery Press.
