Yesterday I attended an interfaith gathering of religious leaders, the purpose of which was to develop relationships across traditions and share perspectives and concerns from our various communities as we approach the tenth anniversary of 9/11. It was a privilege to be invited to participate in this conversation. I went to listen and learn from those who have already made gestures. I was moved by the passionate energy of the participants, but the depth of the evening came from sitting one-on-one, talking about our children, our families—our ways of living and expressing universal tenderness. My lingering thoughts are below.
