June & July 2018 Light

June & July 2018

techerryhill @techerryhill www.templeemanuel.org June & July 2018 Sivan, Tamuz & Av 5778 The story is told of the priest and the rabbi who were close friends. On a number of occasions, the priest had told the rabbi that his ultimate wish was to see God, face to face. One night, while the priest was sitting in his study, there was a great flash of lightning. He looked toward the window and saw that his wish had been fulfilled. Frightened, he didn’t know what to do. He reached for his cell phone and called his friend, and in a frantic voice yelled, “It’s happened. God is at my window. What shall I do?” Calmly, the rabbi replied … “Look busy.” “Busy” is the word. Our lives are so very busy – going, doing, rushing and juggling. Then, quite suddenly, out of the blue, your whole world slows – Almost to a stop. I don’t have to tell you. It jolts us, and reminds us of what is truly important and what is not. It reminds us that life is uncertain … so cherish every day. Take no day for granted. Don’t put off … The Good Deed, The Kind Word, The Call of Reconciliation. As in the story, we too yearn to see God, face to face. We believe that God is with us, in us and we are never alone. The summer months give us a chance to slow it down, pause, reflect, and hit the “reset button” as we search for greater meaning in our lives. May you find goodness, happiness, thankfulness and appreciate the warmth of God’s light.
