This week at Stick your neck out.

John Graham says he used to find meaning in life "chasing adventure or status or power," but that got old after a few years. He describes how he changed course while working as a U.S. diplomat in apartheid-era South Africa. Working to end injustice and suffering has proven much more fulfilling, he found; sticking your neck out for the common good will bring lasting meaning to your life, too. Graham is the president of the Giraffe Heroes Project, which shares the inspiring stories of "giraffes" — people who stick their necks out.

In the news, Jane Greer profiles Beth Miller, the new director of the UUA's ministry and professional leadership staff group. The news blog was on vacation last week and will return with links to Unitarian Universalists in the media later this week.
