Nov. 18, 2020: Jonathan Sacks, longtime Chief Rabbi of the United Hebrew Congregations of the Commonwealth (United Kingdom), died on November 7 at age 72. Rabbi Sacks was an advocate for interfaith respect, understanding and cooperation.  His voice is one to be celebrated.  Consider this brief excerpt from one of Rabbi Sacks’ books, The Great  Partnership: Science, Religion and the Search for Meaning. In an age of fear, moderation is hard to find and harder to sustain.  Who wants to listen…

Nov. 11, 2020: Today is Veterans Day, an occasion to honor and thank men and women who have offered themselves in military service to our nation.  Different from Memorial Day, on which we remember those who died in the line of duty, Veterans Day acknowledges all who have served, in wartime and in peacetime, to maintain our security as a nation. Whenever I think of Veterans Day, I am reminded of the words of Abraham Lincoln in his 2nd Inaugural…

Nov. 4, 2020: The day after “election day” might be a good time for prayer. Consider the following, which was originally shared the day after the 2019 election, but seems to apply this year as well, recognizing that some ballots still need to be counted… Gracious God: Now that the election is over and the ballots counted, May the headiness of victory give way to the humility of service; May the bitterness of defeat yield to the generosity of cooperation;…
