Thought for the Day: God is Setting Us a Big Challenge
“God is setting us a big challenge, a really big challenge — how we are living so close to difference with such powers of destruction, but He is really giving us very little choice.
You know, to quote that great line from W.H. Auden, ‘We must love one another or die.’ And that is where we are, I think, at the beginning of the 21st Century, and since we really can love one another, I have a great deal of hope,” says Rabbi Jonathan Sacks.
In the Krista Tippett interview The Dignity of Difference, Sacks says, “The faithful can and must cultivate their own deepest truth while finding God in the face of the stranger and the religious other.”
