A minor kerfuffle erupted last year over the authorship of “The Serenity Prayer,” long attributed to theologian Reinhold Niebuhr.
The skeptic has since found new evidence that leads him to believe Niebuhr did, in fact, write the prayer, the most-recited part of which says:
God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.
