October 31st, 2020 — Shabbat Lekh Lekha
We have all been living with heightened anxiety, especially as we anticipate the results of this historic election season. Our ancestors Abraham and Sarah also faced the unknown when they set out for a totally new land and life. They had no choice but to journey forward in stages, pausing regularly to rest and recover. To preserve our strength and courage for the days ahead, let us also journey in stages, taking regular breaks to live in the present, name the what we know, and express thanks for the good.
