The first is mutual toleration, [in] which politicians accept their opponents as legitimate….The second norm is forbearance, or self-restraint in the exercise of power.” A related Biblical theme: “There is no longer Jew or Greek…for all of you are one in Christ” (Galatians 3:28). Read it online at: https://nyti.ms/2FmNa86. Copies will also be available on the table at the back of the sanctuary.
