The Serenity Prayer

There is great wisdom to be found in almost every form of faith and every system of belief. Today’s sigil gives a nod to both 20th century Christianity and modern 12-step programs. The Serenity Prayer is perhaps best known for its use by groups like Alcoholics Anonymous, where it has been helping people through dark periods in their lives for over 70 years.

This version is free of any specific theology or ideology, and instead has been boiled down to the core three ideas: serenity, courage and wisdom. I’ve also echoed the familiar “triangle in the circle” symbol for those of you actively involved in A.A. (We can save the discussion of this symbol, which goes back to the very beginning of human culture, for another post.)

“Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can,
And wisdom to know the difference”
