QuotationYour books and offprints arrived promptly. I am at the moment most involved in The Earth Is the Lord's and The Sabbath. I note that your preoccupation with the sanctification of time runs parallel to some ideas of my own in a recent ms. I have sent to the publisher on Liturgy [Seasons of Celebration]. But I am not at all satisfied with my book. Fortunately I have received permission to publish the material on peace that was still swinging in the balance, I think, when you were here "¦ Please think of us when you are in this area again. The door is always open to you, if you let us know when you are coming. Also I would always be glad to hear any news, especially anything that may affect the Jewish Chapter in the Council, and other such things.
