Sally Quinn - Finding Magic
The word Israel, for most, reflects the name of a nation or a people. It derives from the Biblical Patriarch Jacob, who, after “wrestling with an angel” is given the name Israel, meaning “He who struggles with God.” Every sentient human being, whether a believer, agnostic or atheist, can share the name Israel because we all struggle with God. How can we make sense and find meaning and connection with the divine in a world that so often seems devoid of the foundational message of all faiths, love. Or are we actually experiencing and witnessing it every day and perhaps not recognizing it, even when it is right in front of us.
My guest this week on Destination Unlimited, famed journalist, commentator and author Sally Quinn, has lived and lives this journey of discovery. Sally is a longtime Washington Post journalist, columnist, television commentator, renowned Washington DC social hostess and founder of the Washington Post website, “On Faith.” She’s the author of several books and joins me this week to discuss her captivating new book, Finding Magic: A Personal Memoir.
