When it was evening on that day, the first day of the week, and the doors of the house where the disciples had met were locked for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood among them and said, ‘Peace be with you.’
… do we hide our fear behind other things, maybe not locked doors of wood, but doors never the less?
Are those barriers there to try and hide our fear from others, to make others think we are not afraid at all? Or are they there because we think if we pull up the drawbridge and barricade the doors the thing we fear wont get us? The reality is however that once we hide behind our fear it has us in its grasp, it is controlling us for we have locked it in our side of the door as our companion with no way to escape.
