We must build this world from love. And if we do, then we are not alone. That's when God is right here, between and within us all.


The world is frequently not in a good place, and we ache for it to be better, to make more sense, to be a place of love. We worry about our children, which is another way of worrying about everyone. And so we pray. We don't have the luxury of waiting for something outside of humanity to liberate the world. We are called to be part of the healing. We must build this world from love. And if we do, then we are not alone. That's when God is right here, between and within us all.

To Kneel [a #Poem]

To Kneel 

(c) Rabbi Menachem Creditorfor Landingham & Kaepernick, our angels in the wings
Sometimes, it isn't about nuance.
Sometimes it just comes down to facing the storm,
calling God out,
standing at the center of a whirlwind
holding your ground.

No cathedral is immune to agony,
no soul impervious to life itself no nation purely noble.
If it were any other way,
there would be no need for cathedrals
in the first place.

Kneel,  stand,  sit,  rise up.

To kneel is
to submit  to lower oneself  to step down  to pause.
To kneel is to call attention  to touch the Earth's face to listen to those  whose blood saturates  the very roots of our story.
To kneel is to step aside  to step outside  to invite others to come closer  to remember.
To kneel is not to stand not to stand not to stand idly by.
Speak your truth,
God damn it.

That's what God wants most of all.
