A few of the stories in Love Over Fear took place at Salt City Coffee in Syracuse, NY. Around the table, listening to one another, healing can be given space. Dan White Jr. loves the craft of coffee roasting, so we dreamed up the creation of a unique Love Over Fear Roast to celebrate the beauty of Compassionate Curiosity from chapter 8. We hope that with every tasty cup you are inspired to move beyond fear to love your enemies.









Music transcends words. The message of Love Over Fear needed to move beyond the page into the sacredness of sound. Two artists soaked with the message and allowed the Spirit to stir something up within them.


SONG: Be Love by Kevin Max

The enigmatic K-Max marinated in the message of Love Over Fear and crafted a beautiful, beatle-esque, ballad. He was inspired to write a song that captured our common humanity and common need to love each other despite our differences. Simple yet profound. Enjoy the anthem!

SONG: No More Monsters by Leo

Leo (Hannah Ruttle) engages the theme of ferocious fear from the book. A starry and whimsical soundscape was created. She felt her own fears and translated them into universal language. Working off the 'monster' idea she captures that imagery and invites listeners to a more compassionate way. The song ends in an expression of worship, in the hopeful possibility of not being afraid to love our enemies. Explore the beauty!
