  3. God Loves the Stranger: Introduction

    God Loves the Stranger

    —Deuteronomy 10:18

    When I take these words deeply into my being, my flesh and blood, there is enormous relief. I am no longer struggling to protect the limited ideas I have about who I am. I am no longer projecting endlessly limited ideas of who you are. I am free. No one is a stranger. Everyone including my so-called enemies is an infinitely complex and precious creature. My labels, categories, and strategies to protect myself from them are paltry in comparison with their sacred mystery.

  4. Yom Kippur at Lincoln Memorial

    (from God Loves the Stranger)

    Today is a day of repentance, renewal, and solidarity.

    Repentance in Hebrew is T’shuvah, which means turning and returning—making an about-face.

    It is a most treasured human gift.

    One who turns around and heads in the right direction Is respected and appreciated.

    Indeed, when we say that we are lost, it is often the beginning of the journey home.

    The Source of Life, the Divine Beloved, calls us to return, calls us to T’shuvah, again and again.
