Chief Rabbi Sir Jonathan Sacks's lament on lost faith

London Times on Chief Rabbi Sir Johnathan Sacks (pictured) remarks to Lambeth. He calls for reconciliation and unity -

Sir Jonathan, the first Chief Rabbi to address the Lambeth Conference, said that a society that lost its religion lost “graciousness”. “Relationships break down. Marriage grows weak. Families become fragile. Communities atrophy. And the result is that people feel vulnerable and alone.”

He continued: “That is where we are.” He said that mankind was “living through one of the most fateful ages of change since Homo sapiens first set foot on Earth”.
