אֱלֹהִ֣ים לָ֭נוּ מַחֲסֶ֣ה וָעֹ֑ז

God is our home [refuge] and strength

עֶזְרָ֥ה בְ֝צָר֗וֹת נִמְצָ֥א מְאֹֽד׃

a very present help during times of trouble.

עַל־כֵּ֣ן לֹא־נִ֭ירָא

Therefore, we will not succumb to fear

בְּהָמִ֣יר אָ֑רֶץ

when conditions change on the earth. – Psalms 46:2

 

When the shut-down began, I did something I had not done before: I posted on social media. Yes, finally, and, admittedly with some reluctance, I have entered the 21st century. The Pandemic is a serious threat to our lives, livelihoods, and way of life - and it is also an enormous spiritual opportunity. I wanted to offer more than before, not less. We all need more communication and connection, more inspiration, more compassion, and more support.
