to the Lord, the God of Israel"
So now you are doubtless feeling sympathetic for me but, I have to say, I'm looking forward to Shabbat as always . Shabbat is an amazing gift that G-d gave us; divine legislation which tell us (rather than permits us) to rest & be encouraged as well as, among other things , to be with family, friends, share in meals, study & debate our faith, worship, rest, sleep & have lots of sex with your better half .
The sun is up. I'm looking forward to Shabbat. I cannot solve all of the world's problems. But I am allowed to have a brief period of rest, before I try and tackle them. So next week, we are hoping to start our 'let's get biblical' series, which will be a frank (sometimes sweary & honest ) discussion on the weeks Torah study as well as the Torah portion for that week. Moronic fundamentalist loons DO NOT own holy writ & in our case the Bible, but twist and distort it, whatever shit they come out with about being 'True Torah Jews', 'Bible believing Christians' or whatever other God bothering
May God protect those who are ill ,suffering, unsure, afraid today. May he bless those who are happy to bless others with that happiness. May we be more Shalom in the name of the God of peace, show compassion in the name of the God of love and celebrate in the name of the God of life. May our actions & deeds be greater than our words, may we bring honour to faith and show by example the name of God. Ahmen (or Amen).
