“Do and dare what is right, not swayed by the whim of the moment.
Bravely take hold of the real, not dallying now with what might be.
Not in the flight of ideas but only in action is freedom.
Make up your mind and come out into the tempest of living.
God’s command is enough and your faith in Him to sustain you.
Then at last freedom will welcome your spirit amid great rejoicing.”
~ from Ethics by Dietrich Bonhoeffer, German Lutheran pastor, theologian, founding member of the Confessing Church, arrested and executed by the Nazis (Feb. 4, 1906 – Apr. 9, 1945)
