my theology in 99 words
© Rabbi Menachem Creditor
God is the collective potential of the human imagination. Every good thing every person has ever yearned for and will ever yearn for is what I mean by the word "God." My God doesn't send cancer or hurricanes or people to hurt others. When a person dies a fragment of divine potential is lost. When I ask God to embrace my lost loved one, I cry to my community that every life matters. “I love you” means that I am not alone and that I am here so that you need not be either. That, for me, is God.
