A Moment in Time: If You Had One Moment to Speak With God ….

Dear all,
If you had the chance to call God for just one moment (after all, the call rates are out of this world), what would you ask?
What happens after I die?
Why do bad things happen?
Where are You?
Do You understand me?
Do You ever need help?
The truth is, a call to God is not long distance. We can call out at any time. But we should be aware that the conversation is two-way. According to a section in the Talmud (Shabbat 31a) God has questions for us as well:
Are you ethical in your business?
Are you being the real you?
Do you make time for your spiritual life?
Do you have hope?
Are you planting seeds for the next generation?
We all have the opportunity to take a moment in time each day to both call out as well as to listen closely to the important questions of life. What’s on your mind? And how might you respond to the questions posed in return?
With love and Shalom,
Rabbi Zach Shapiro
