thought for the day, by former chief rabbi lord sacks

We don’t have prophets nowadays, but if we did, one place you’d probably find them would be the Today programme, because today’s tough interviewers are recognisably in that tradition of holding power accountable to truth, and among them for me, and for many others, John Humphrys has been one of the best for our time …

thought for the day, by former chief rabbi lord sacks
