Donald S. Harrington: Strength for the Day

We thank You, O God, for the cheerfulness which has broken into the darkness of our self-made dungeons; for the way in which old misunder standings may fade away and old quarrels be washed out by compassion; for the insurgent courage which ever lifts its head above the roaring cross currents of past mistakes and miseries and affirms the age-old right to try again.

Donald S. Harrington (1914-2005) was a Unitarian minister at Community Church of New York and led New York’s liberal party as state party chairman and candidate for lieutenant governor. Harrington used both political and church pulpits to speak liberal ideals.
