Sunday Jan. 10 2021 Rev John P. Manwell

“When Does the Day Begin?”
This Sunday we ponder the story of an ancient rabbi, who asked his students how we can tell the moment when night ends and day begins.  “Is it when there’s light enough to tell a dog from a sheep?” one asks.  No, the rabbi says.  Is it when we can tell a date-palm from a fig tree?” a second asks.  No, that’s not it either, the rabbi replies.  So when is it? they ask.

“It’s the moment when we can look into the eyes of another person and recognize them as our brother or sister,” the rabbi says. “When we can do that, the light of day has come for us.”
