Food for Thought from Peter Gomes

002 - Copy

In our fractious religious and political world, some words of wisdom from Peter Gomes:

“…we should be reminded with a painful poignancy that we too can, and often do, get it wrong.  That is why the  most profound of all religious sentiments should not be certainty, which inevitably leads to arrogance, but modesty, which, because of a generous God, leads to mercy and forgiveness.”

  1. I think I may have his book somewhere. I don’t remember if I finished reading it. I heard him speak on Imus no less and was impressed by him. It was a long time ago. Has he died? I think I heard that. Love, Fran
