"On Turning"

It takes an act of will for us to make a turn. It means breaking old habits. It means admitting that we may have been wrong, and this is never easy. It means losing face. It means starting all over again. And this is always painful. It means saying I am sorry. It means recognizing that we have the ability to change. But unless we turn, we’ll be trapped forever.... Lord, help us to turn from callousness to sensitivity, from hostility to love, from pettiness to purpose, from envy to contentment, from carelessness to discipline, from fear to faith. Turn us toward each other, Lord, for in isolation, there is no life.

Gates of Repentance, a liturgy from Yom Kippur
