The Dignity of Difference

As we begin a new season of Attuned, we begin with a reoccurring idea:  God is bigger than the categories that we confine God in.

God, in fact, is bigger than religion according to Chief Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks, Chief Rabbi of Great Britain.  Lord Sacks sat down with Krista Tippett of On Being to discuss much more than a Judaic world view.  As one of the most visible religious leaders of our world, Lord Sacks spoke about such topics like our fear of the stranger and our problem with diversity.

Among the many profound statements contained in this interview, Lord Sacks says, “The greatest single antidote to violence is conversation, speaking our fears, listening to the fears of others, and in that sharing of vulnerabilities, discovering a genesis of hope.”

So join us for a new season of Attuned and be sure to tune into On Being through this site – you’ll be glad you did!
