The Time Is Now: A Call to Uncommon Courage
Sister Joan D. Chittister, O.S.B., is an American Benedictine nun, theologian, author, and speaker. She has served as Benedictine prioress and Benedictine federation president, president of the Leadership Conference of Women Religious, and co-chair of the Global Peace Initiative of Women.
In her book Sr Joan speak to us of the courage simple and ordinary people need to have to speak the truth to power.
She tells us of Deborah and Miriam of the Old Testament who made no small choices. They chose courage. They chose the expansion of the soul. They chose to stake their lives on what must be rather than stake their comfort, their security, the direction of their lives, on what was. Something we all need to do to make this world a better place!
