tonight! "Living a Mythic Life: An Interactive Creative Experience"

Living a Mythic Life: An Interactive Creative Experience
with Rabbi Menachem Creditor
Sundays Oct. 17 & 31, 7:30pm-9:30pm @ CNS

As part of the CNS Sunday morning minyan & speakers program from February through July 2008, Rabbi Creditor taught a series entitled "Living a Mythic Life." The original series sparked a number of projects in Rabbi Creditor's work. He invites the CNS community to be a part of the next aspect of this journey: a proposed book, to be entitled "Living a Mythic Life." The structure of this project is fluid, and conversation-based. Each session will be comprised of a one hour teaching by Rabbi Creditor, followed by one hour of dialogue with participants. The entire program will be recorded, transcribed, and edited into the core of the proposed book. Topics will include notions of "Mythic Time," "Mythic Space," "Mythic Narrative," and "Mythic Conduct." The product is unpredictable, but the conversations are sure to be engaging. This series is free. No registration is necessary. All participants will be asked to sign a waiver so that the conversations can be included in the eventual book.

To Kneel [a #Poem]

To Kneel 

(c) Rabbi Menachem Creditorfor Landingham & Kaepernick, our angels in the wings
Sometimes, it isn't about nuance.
Sometimes it just comes down to facing the storm,
calling God out,
standing at the center of a whirlwind
holding your ground.

No cathedral is immune to agony,
no soul impervious to life itself no nation purely noble.
If it were any other way,
there would be no need for cathedrals
in the first place.

Kneel,  stand,  sit,  rise up.

To kneel is
to submit  to lower oneself  to step down  to pause.
To kneel is to call attention  to touch the Earth's face to listen to those  whose blood saturates  the very roots of our story.
To kneel is to step aside  to step outside  to invite others to come closer  to remember.
To kneel is not to stand not to stand not to stand idly by.
Speak your truth,
God damn it.

That's what God wants most of all.
