Knowing our place

Pollack, Robert

As you've learned, I am here today because in recent years, the Columbia University Center for the Study of Science and Religion has shared a resource center in Riverside with Dr. Thomas's Education Ministry, and also because Riverside has chosen to count the days in a new way, to include this week devoted to Eco-Justice.

So thank you, for giving me the opportunity to count this day rightly, as one in which I may speak with you all on a serious matter that involves us all.

How then shall we count our days rightly? One way -- to honor the variety of different ways we Americans are free count our days -- would be to note that today is about midway between two of our many celebrations of liberty and hope, Easter 2008 and Passover 5768. Let's look a little deeper at those notions.
