It's that time of year again. When the hint of fall lingers a bit longer in days that are getting shorter. When our calendar adds a digit as we enter October. When ghastly images of a pagan holiday fight for shelf space among the already-appearing images of holidays focused on giving thanks and accepting the birth of Jesus. And when on the first weekend of October Nashville hosts the Zoe conference. This year, the theme is:


Tonight's speaker asked us to consider what we are afraid of. In this climate of world events the list could be pretty long- including the economy, terrorism, our own government, asparagus, parenting, clowns and much, much more. A video even included images from movies with scary characters. Honestly though, I have to admit that there might be one more thing that was more frightening than the images in the video. I cannot really describe it, so I'll just reveal it here. If you have small children, you might want to ask them to leave the room before you scroll down. Don't say you weren't warned.
