Strengthening Moral Courage in Public Life: Moral Acting

Part of Westminster Abbey Institute's spring events season, Feeding the Soul

Even if we know what is the right thing to do, and we want very much to do it, what then gives us the courage to act? What reminds those in public office of their vocation to serve? Powerful stories of journeys that resonate with the stories in our own lives can waken the giant within and remind us that the best, most interesting lives are lived for others. In this lecture, Claire Foster-Gilbert will describe the ‘hero’s journey’ as a map for lives of public service.
