Andrew draws from the work of Paul Tillich, an existentialist , Protestant theologian, to explore the significance of courage for our lives today. In The Courage to Be, Tillich argues that the antidote to a life of anxiety is found in the courage to affirm our right to exist even if that existence is out of step with the majority views of the culture in which we live. This claim is eerily similar to the Unitarian Universalist assertions regarding self-reliance, and both arguments suggest that courage is most needed to grow and change, rather than defend the status quo.
