To the One: Gratitude

To the One: Gratitude
(c) Rabbi Menachem Creditor

To the One 

Who witnesses life
   Who is Life
      Who feels our joys and sorrows,
          Who is our Tears and Laughter

To the One

Who touches us from the inside
   Who knows the world we dream about
      Who is the Dream we will one day realize

To the One

Who waits in the quiet hour
   Who vibrates in joyous noise
      Who fills every moment with the potential of Presence

To the One

Infinite One
   Source of Life
      You

Thank You.

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.
