Thank you for sharing the thoughts and ideas of Rabbi Heschel. I recall hearing his name mentioned when I was a college student as a great religious and philosphical thinker of the 20th Century. A few years ago I received a prayer card when I went on a retreat. It gave a quote from Rabbi Heschel that continues to speak to me. The quote says "All things have a home: the bee has a hive, the bird a nest. For the soul, the home is where prayer is, and a soul without prayer is a soul without a home.Continuity, permanence, intimacy, authenticity and earnestness are its attributes.I enter this home as a supplicant and emerge as a witness, I enter as a stranger and emerge as next of kin. I may enter spiritually shapeless inwardly disfigured and emerge wholly changed."I look forward to listening to the program again and exploring the other resources available on the show website to explore the thought and ideas of this fascinating figure.
