Preparing to Make a Difference

In many Jewish households, a mezuzah hangs at the doorways, marking the threshold between inside and outside or even between rooms. The mezuzah, and the prayer it contains, ask us to be mindful: Who do we want to be on the other side of that threshold? How do we want to act? What do we want to carry with us, and what do we need to leave behind as we move into a new space?

This Sunday we spend time preparing for who we want to be, how we want to act, and what we need to carry with us when we cross over the threshold from the current lockdown into the unknown world that we will help to create. We find inspiration in the stories of creativity and resilience that have led to life-giving change on the other side of a threshold. And Guitars Aloud bring us “Solo le pido a dios,” by Léon Gieco, to remind us of what’s at stake when we become indifferent to heartbreak. Please join us for this broken-openhearted Sunday!
