In "Wisdom from the Hebrew Scriptures," a Tapestry of Faith program
I do not pretend to understand the moral universe; the arc is a long one, my eyes reaches but little ways; I cannot calculate the curve and complete the figure by the experience of sight; I can divine it by conscience. And from what I see I am sure it bends towards justice. — Theodore Parker, nineteenth century Unitarian minister and abolitionist
Find a way to recognize and celebrate acts of courage in your own life or in the life of the broader community. You might look for David and Goliath-type stories in the news or in fiction. You might also name those acts of courage in your life by writing of them in your journal, noting them at the family dinner table, or lifting them up in small groups or religious education groups. You might also consider presenting a modern day "David and Goliath" drama as part of a talent show or other congregational event.
