About being bold

One characteristic of the Synodal Church is that “all are invited to speak with courage and parrhesia”. Parrhesia (from Greek παρρησία (parrhēsía), πᾶν “all” and ῥῆσις “utterance, speech”) means literally “to speak everything” and by extension “to speak freely” or “to speak boldly” (via Wikipedia).

We can translate parrhesia as boldness.


Boldness is the opposite of fearfulness. To be bold implies a willingness to get things done despite risks. Boldness may be a property that only certain individuals are able to display. (via Wikipedia)
