From A.J. Heschel:
The first moment of each class is like the hour in which the Jews stood at the Red Sea.
it is and sometimes classes are like 40 years in the desert. mostly not, but sometimes…
And every now and then, things work out and you go to the mountain top like Moses.
and sometimes on that mountain top you are allowed to see the promised land that you will not enter.
Scott, do you have a citation for the quote?
Golly, that quote needs a fuller context! So many possibilities for wet feet!
