Rash Boon

“Rash Boon” is a term from Celtic and Arthurian literature, a promise made without knowing precisely what will be required. A rash boon is an oath that binds for a lifetime, laughable in our modern era. The Knights of the Round Table, Gawain, Lancelot and Percivale, are long gone. Still, to this day, some pledge their lives to the service of others. Imagine a world ordered around this rash boon: “I will seek and serve Christ in all persons, love my neighbor as myself, strive for justice and peace among all people, and respect the dignity of every human being.”
