The Story Continues…

The 80’s The 80’s brought a lot of changes in our small family. My search for ‘truth’ caused a lot of confusion and a bit of disruption to my friends and family. Being a good ‘Christian’ just didn’t fit into my new set of ‘truths’ anymore. What was I to do with all these ‘facts’ that were popping out of…

Korach … and I’m stumped

Yep, I have to admit it … Korach (Korah) always seems to stump me in various ways when I read this Torah Portion. It’s the story in Numbers 16 about one of the leaders in the Israelite tribes, Korah, who had the audacity to question why Moses was the only one that could lead. It caused a LOT of headaches….and…

Just a bad day…

So you had a bad day….do you remember that song? As you listen to the lyrics…I’ll bet a tiny smile is tryin to tickle your lips. Brings back some way back memories from years ago, doesn’t it? It does for me. Even though the lyrics seem ‘sad‘ – somehow the melody manages to lift you up a bit. If not…let’s…

Go Forth….

The Torah Portion for this week is “Shelach” and is found in the 37th reading, Numbers 13:1-15:41. Literally, it means to ‘send out’. So I ask you, have you been ‘sent out’? What do I mean, you ask? Well, in this reading, we see that Moshe sent out 12 spies to check out the land that the Holy One said…

The Law is DONE!

So the Torah/Law is done away with – right? WRONG! Let’s look at that again. Most that believe the law is done away with go right to Romans 8:2 –  “For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death.” So…wait, let’s read that again. Start from the…

Let Him In….

Sometimes we have a hard time ‘letting Him in’ … It comes with all the ups and downs of life, the chaos all around us and the uncertainty of tomorrow – it’s just hard. But here’s a beautiful song from Psalm 139:8 … close your eyes, and listen….and let Him in.

Ruth’s Journey

Well, we can’t talk about Ruth without remembering a bit about Orpah ( and yes, I’ve heard that one letter was changed in her name for that famous one in our time). Orpah….decided to listen to her mother-in-law, Naomi and turned away and went back home. Maybe she felt that traveling that distance to a foreign land with foreign peoples…

Shabbat Shalom!
