The power of we
Mission and covenant are an antidote to individualism. They remind us of the responsibilities that come with an affirmation of interdependence.
We are people who put windows in doors
Putting holes in things that used to be solid is hard. Some days, there is broken glass everywhere. And not all of us are skilled with the metaphorical power tools.
The discipline of forgiveness
It’s gotten so that if I call a loved one during that period of ten days between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, they’ll just ask, ‘Is this the phone call?’
Despite our best intentions, all parents make mistakes, act inconsistently, and generally fall short of our goals. But we can also model asking for forgiveness.
