This blog is based on references in the Bible to fear. God wills that we “BE NOT AFRAID”. Many theologians state that the eighth deadly sin is fear. It is fear and its natural animal reaction to fight or flight that is the root cause of our failings to create a Kingdom of God on earth. By “the power of the Holy Spirit” we can be witnesses and “communicators” of a new and redeemed humanity “even to the ends of the earth” (Acts 1:7 8). This blog is dedicated to Mary the Mother of God.

began to sell hotdogs at baseball games. Since then, hotdogs have been

between baseball and hotdogs, the American Meat Institute invites baseball
players to attend the annual hotdog luncheon on Capitol Hill during National
Hot Dog Day on July 23rd.
