So Much to Share

After a week of study leave, I have lots of insights but I’m too tired to share them today. Abraham Joshua Heschell explains the gist of my thinking:

“When faith is completely replaced by creed, worship by discipline, love by habit; when the crisis of today is ignored because of the splendor of the past; when faith becomes an heirloom rather than a living fountain; when religion speaks only in the name of authority rather than with the voice of compassion—its message becomes meaningless.”

― Abraham Joshua Heschel, God in Search of Man: A Philosophy of Judaism

I’ll have more to say tomorrow but for now, COVID has sparked a re-thinking of our faith and what it means to love God and love our neighbors. More about that this week. It’s good to be back.
