“Open to Awe”

12/24/2019

As Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel has written, “Awe enables us to perceive in the world intimations of the divine…to sense the ultimate in the common and the simple; to feel in the rush of the passing the stillness of the eternal….Forfeit your sense of awe, let your conceit diminish your ability to revere, and the universe becomes a marketplace for you.”

On this Christmas Eve, may we be open to awe.
