Freedom Is a State of Mind

Frustrated. That’s how I felt. I woke up this past week after more than a month of quarantine and social distancing and I was frustrated. I was frustrated because I was still unable to gather together with my congregation for worship. Technology is a blessing, but it just isn’t the same as being together in our sanctuary as our voices join in praise and adoration of our Heavenly Father. I was frustrated because I missed my friends and family. Yes, I can Facetime, Zoom, GoToMeeting, and Facebook with them. But there is nothing like the feeling of hugging someone whose heart G-D has knit together with yours. I was frustrated because I like having order in my life and Covid-19 has changed near

Was Our New Normal Provided So That We Could Escape Our Old Normal

I don’t know about you, but I like normal. It’s not that I am not flexible; I just prefer to be flexible within the limits of normal.

I know which days I go to my office early, so I can finish certain tasks before others arrive. I know which days I go to my coffee shop and visit with the regulars. I know which days I will prepare for studies and which days I will be visiting the members of our congregation. Each day of my schedule is org

Are We Depending on G-D or Government?

Like almost every rabbi or pastor in the United States over the past few weeks, I have been watching the vast changes taking place in our nation and doing my best to keep my feet on steady ground as nearly everything has shifted. We have had to restructure almost every part of our ministry practices. We went from service and studies with people attending in the building to live-streaming those same services.
