The Prophetic Ideal in the World Today

 

Good morning, dear friends.  It is always a joy, and a great honor, to be together with you.  Thank you, Rev. Wilkinson, for your friendship and your gracious welcome.  As always, you are an important friend and thought partner in how we can engage in the most impactful ways in the broader community. 

We are at an interesting juncture in the Jewish year.  Some of you may know that the Jewish calendar is a lunar calendar…as such, the year is several days shorter than the secular solar year.

Instead of cursing the Israelites, Balaam blesses them.
