On the Holy Ground: Practical Spirituality and Practical Moral Courage

  • Carolyn Swift Jones


Practical moral courage is the ability to love freely no matter what circumstances we are in or whom we face. Practical moral courage stands up and says, “That’s enough” to violence and moves quickly to heal division of any kind. Practical moral courage has no enemy, because practical moral courage recognizes that we are one. Practical moral courage is courageous loving—for it takes courage to love those that hurt us, it takes courage to do good to those who hurt us, and it takes courage to pray for our “enemies”. This essay explores how practical moral courage is integral part of practical spirituality.
