Introduction, Workshop 5: The Call for Courage

In "Heeding the Call," a Tapestry of Faith program

One isn't necessarily born with courage, but one is born with potential. Without courage, we cannot practice any other virtue with consistency. We can't be kind, true, merciful, generous or honest. — Maya Angelou

In this workshop, youth consider the role of courage in creating justice. They discuss courageous acts, big and small, as well as feelings of fear, and taking the consequences of actions.

This workshop also introduces a new tool for the Justicemakers Guide: an oppression continuum. The tool is explored lightly in Activity 3, Opposing Oppression, but more thoroughly in Faith in Action, in which participants can learn to be an ally to a marginalized group. This option includes several steps and is continued in subsequent workshops.
