Dear Friends:

A Marine I know once described what he called “moral courage” and “physical courage.” The latter has to do with battlefield bravery, the kind of sacrificial conduct that causes a soldier to fall on a grenade, attack an entrenched position, or risk his life to save a friend.

Moral courage is about taking a stand for truth and conscience regardless of the political or personal consequences. Christians should display this kind of courage with kindness and winsomeness, but with unequivocal firmness.

This week at FRC, Dr. Owen Strachan spoke movingly of the need for a compassionate but unbending Christian testimony in our culture (“The Sacrificial Witness of the Christian Moral Tradition“). Watch and listen to his roughly 30-minute remarks; there will be few ways of investing your time more wisely as we draw near to our pivotal elections.

“Courage is rightly considered the foremost of the virtues,” Winston Churchill is quoted as saying, “for upon it, all others depend.” At a time of moral crisis in our country and our world, there are few qualities we need more.

P.S. For an update on the latest legal developments in the shooting that took place at FRC in August, read our recent press release. We continue to praise God for the moral and physical courage of our extraordinary colleague, Leo Johnson, and are grateful for his ongoing recuperation.
