A few years ago in my ignorance, our congregation went to a local park for Shavuot. We didn’t plan our meeting place. We just jumped in our vehicles and headed out for fun, games, and Torah study. We went to a very popular park in our area. Then we found a spot that provided a… Continue reading Shavuot In The Park 2018

The Bible and the entire world are filled with events of people not taking responsibility. Wars have been fought because leaders were unwilling to take responsibility for their situations leaving millions dead.

Doubt comes by hearing Faith decreases… Continue reading Road to Faith
