    The problem to be faced is: how to combine loyalty to one’s own tradition with
    reverence for different traditions.

    – Abraham Joshua Heschel

  2. Michael Says:

    Thanks, I love the writings of Heschel. But I don’t see much value in being loyal to one’s tradition if it’s wrong, or having reverence for other traditions if they don’t deserve reverence. Traditions deserve only limited reverence. People are what God intends to redeem.
