Moral courage and wisdom

“Moral courage is the courage to take action for moral reasons despite the risk of adverse consequences. Moral courage therefore involves deliberation or careful thought.” Wikipedia.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer displayed an extraordinary amount of moral courage in his life, and in his resistance and defiance of the Nazi regime. He gets my gold star. On December 22 1942, Dietrich Bonhoeffer sent a Christmas letter (“After Ten Years”) to his closest friends in the resistance. In a bitterly realistic tone, he faced the prospect that they might fail, and that his own life’s work might remain incomplete.

I'm a life long learner. I've been on a voyage of discovery since childhood so ask why a lot. I'm Irish and a bit American. I write because its freeing and healing. I love photography, theology, the natural beauty of Ireland and swimming in the sea year round. I see the world through the lens of Celtic Christianity but can try on other perspectives. The business of everyday spirituality has always fascinated me. I hope this blog challenges, inspires and encourages you. Perhaps you'd like to work with me. Please reach out to me if that's the case. I'd love to hear from YOU so please comment and let me know you are out there!
