Courage, Fear, Action

This month's theme at UUFNB is courage.  In the digital age it is relatively easy to track word usage over time.  Go ahead and google the word to see a  handy chart.  Is Courage as relevant today as in the 18th century? While use of the word "courage" has change over the last two centuries, has the concept itself changed? How is courage relevant in our time? Today we will have a congregational discussion re this old-new concept.
