Strengthening Our Core: the Partnership of Courage and Justice

Standing for justice often requires bravery yet, often, those who do the dangerous right thing do not see themselves as especially heroic.  Their acts stem from a life and community that clearly know the best course of action. The Rev. Erika Hewitt notes that the origin of the word courage, is the Latin word “cor,” or heart and, according to the poet Mark Nebo, courage initially meant to stand by one’s core: a reminder “that living from the Center is what enables us to face whatever life has to offer.” How do we deepen our ties to heart and mind and strengthen our inner resolve to act for what we believe is best?
