“Of Serenity and Courage”

Rev. Axel Gehrmann and W.A. Ann Jacobson
In his well-known prayer, Reinhold Niebuhr asks for the serenity to accept what cannot be changed, the courage to change what can be changed, and the wisdom to know the difference. When we have the capacity to make meaningful change, we need courage to act. That seems clear. And yet, in the course of our lives when we are confronted with events we can’t control, don’t we also need to be brave? Perhaps accepting our fate requires a different kind of courage.
