Father Alexander Schmemann: Love Casts Out Fear

” ‘Perfect love casts out fear.’ (1 John 4:18). Love is contrasted not with hate, but with fear. How deep and true it is… Fear is, first and foremost, the absence of love, or rather that which, like weeds, grows where there is no love.” – Fr. Alexander Schmemann

"Perfect love casts out fear 1 John 4_18. Love is contrasted not with hate, but with fear…" - Father Alexander Schmemann.
