I'm only asking you to stop every so often and turn off your mobile device, put down the Angry Birds and the Words with Friends and take a moment. Stop to look up and look around. Pause and check in . . . and spend a moment there.
By virtue of Isaac who offered himself as a sacrifice on top of the altar, the Holy One . . . will resurrect the dead in the future.
—Mekilta of Rabbi Simeon
God is transfiguring the world right this very moment through us because God believes in us and because God loves us.
—Archbishop Desmond Tutu
