Bending the Arc

“The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends towards justice,” 19th century Theodore Parker is famously paraphrased. How do we know that the arc really bends towards justice? How do we know that we’re bending it in the right direction? How can we sustain our spirits as we roll up our sleeves to mess around in the muck of change-making? As the election approaches, in the midst of war, environmental and economic crisis, we’ll wrestle with the contradictory nature of “fighting” for justice filled with love and joy.
