Faith does not spring out of nothing. It comes with the discovery of the holy dimension of our existence. Suddenly we become aware that our lips touch the veil that hangs before the Holy of Holies. Our faith is lit up for a time with the light from behind the veil. Faith opens our hearts for the entrance of the holy. This is how close we are to the holy. When we open ourselves up to the possibility that God can be there in any moment, miracle is all around us.

-Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel

Here is our Prayer Blessing…

Rest in Rest
Holy leisure
Airtight Time Sabbath,
Creation slowing
Eyes open
Ears hearing Sabbath,
Sacred rhythms
Guiltless feasting
Heaven hugging Sabbath,
Nothing doing
Nowhere going
Work unknowing Sabbath

-John David Walt
