Stanley Kunitz was 95 years old when he wrote a beautiful poem called “The Layers.” https://tinyurl.com/yx5jreus Among its most moving lines are these: “How shall the heart be reconciled / to its feast of losses?”

Most of us who have the good fortune to live into our seventies and beyond have known that “feast of losses," and must find some way to embrace it. My attempt to make peace with loss took me to writing this poem, whose title is a line I woke up with one morning.

“Everything falls away” is not an inspiring thought, but I think it has the redeeming virtue of being true. Whenever I’m able to start with truth—grounded in reality—I usually find that I’m taken to a place of hope, even beauty.

For me, at least, that’s where this poem ends up. May all who know loss come to know the hope and beauty found on the other side of loss...

Why Does God Let Us Suffer | Aleph Beta

From Dr Mayim Bialik:
“Today is Tisha b'Av, a day of mourning which commemorates the destruction of the First Temple (by the Babylonians ~ 586 BCE) and Second Temple (by the Romans ~ 73 AD). We fast 25 hours and adjust our thinking to reflect on destruction, greed, loss, and hope. Here is how I make the day meaningful: Aleph Beta videos! This particular video focuses on why God allows suffering and offers a path on how to deal with loss. The videos are both intellectually engaging (there's always a deep analysis of Biblical text) AND emotionally gripping (I always cry halfway through).”

Why do bad things happen? Why does God let us suffer? Explore the answer to these questions with Rabbi David Fohrman here.

We pray for those gathering at Sacred Circle over the next few days. A Gathering Prayer (from the Disciple's Prayer Book, 1992):

Creator, we give you thanks for all you are and all you bring to us for our visit within your creation. In Jesus, you place the Gospel in the Centre of this Sacred Circle through all of which all creation is related. You show us the way to live a generous and compassionate life. Give us your strength to live together with respect and commitment as we grow in your spirit, for you are God, now and forever. Amen.

Join us in celebrating World Chimpanzee Day with the Jane Goodall Institute! This special occasion honors the day in 1960 when Dr. Jane Goodall first visited what is now Gombe Stream National Park.

As Dr. Goodall says, "Only if we help shall all be saved." What will you do today to help?
