In opposition to the inaction of this blog, I thought I’d give you a section of Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s poem “Stations on the Way to Freedom,” called Action:

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.

Published in Bonhoeffer’s Ethics, 1995 Touchstone edtion.

This small section of verse has given me motivation on countless occasions. I hope it does the same for you.
