So what exactly is LOVE>FEAR?:

LOVE>FEAR is an initiative of awareness and service centered in Blount County, Tennessee. It is our goal to come alongside members of our community, by overcoming our own fears, and create relationships of love with those who need it most. Ultimately, we could all use a little more love in our lives. While we can all probably agree with that, we've found it's difficult to actually start making a difference. LOVE>FEAR aims to turn our desire for love to be greater into tangible action, through simple acts of loving service in our community. We hope that you will join us in creating a unified community dedicated to pursuing a love that is greater than fear. You can read more about why love is greater here.
