Additional Jonathan Sacks Quotes
“Side-by-side relationships [doing constructive things together] should be encouraged in all religious congregations. Faith leaders should urge their communities to reach out to others in the neighborhood…. Religious representatives should take a lead in creating a covenant around the values we share and our collective commitment to the common good. Faith divides; citizenship unites. That is why it is important for faith leaders to spell out the need for shared space where we celebrate our common humanity, not just our theological particularities.”
–Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks [The Home We Build Together] p. 239.
“Marriage, sanctified by the bond of fidelity, is the nearest life gets to a work of art.”
