URGENT: HELP VICTIMS OF TYPHOON HAIYAN

The most powerful typhoon to hit land in recorded history has left thousands dead in the Philippines and many more homeless and desperate. Towns and villages are leveled. There is no water to drink or food to eat. CLICK HERE
We are collecting funds to provide urgent aid to local groups in the Philippines that know their communities and what they need to help survivors. With your support, we will make a difference for local people, just as we did in the wake of the earthquake in Haiti three years ago. CLICK HERE

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.
