Quotation of the Week
To explain to them that they don’t have all the answers.
If you’ll be modest, you’ll probably understand the text better,
and there’s much less chance that you’ll do the awful things in the name of God.”
--Hanan Eschel, quoted by Bruce Feiler in Abraham
= Available at Sembach Library
