on FAITH....

The conversation was heating up,
 as the opposing views collided in RED and BLUE and GREEN technicolor...
One said sadly, "I've LOST my faith.."
The other said, "This is precisely the moment where your faith must KICK IN...."
and on and on....
The concept of 'faith' is clearly
NOT based in Empiricism or Any Manner of Physical Evidence....
Au contraire...
Faith is an innate belief that ALL WILL BE WELL....
that ALL WILL HEAL....
Faith cannot be backed up with equation or summation or
within a "petri dish"...
There is no SET SOLUTION to ANY of life's myriad quagmire and dilemma ...
What I can say, with UTTER assuredness...
is that
GOD EXISTS....
That the essence of GOD is in EVERYTHING....OMNIPOTENT....GRAND SCALE....
that religion is most certainly NOT a PERFECT SCIENCE...
But that ultimately, it provides us with everything that we need.....
JEW, CHRISTIAN, all the same really.....
wrapped in a different shade of pink...
Shabbat Shalom....
and have a SPLENDID and FAITHFUL Memorial Day....
