“I pray that in this age of separation and division and barrier-building and disconnection, that we transcend the lie that our thoughts and actions don’t affect each other. I pray that we put the neighbor back in the neighborhood.”
“We need to prepare for the fact that the battle against prejudice and injustice may never end, but the fact that we fought it makes us victorious. We need to have each other’s backs (and each other’s phone numbers).”
I am more self-aware today and am also aware that I must display the same grace that I would expect from anyone else. The real work, the inner work, begins now.
The first call, “What Seminary Doesn’t Teach You,” will be held Thursday, January 28 at 8 p.m. EST.
A heartfelt thank you to everyone who participated in Interfaith Week on any and every level.
Your weekly dose of “Tea Time with Joran.” Enjoy!
