Not the first time I’ve posted on this topic this week but I’m really struggling here. I can’t marry the idea of a loving god with the way this pandemic indiscriminately cuts down ostensibly good people.
I worry about what that means for someone like me, someone not traditionally devout.
I know times like these push some people towards more fervent observance but it’s only pushing me away.
With Passover upon us, I feel especially resistant to preparing and celebrating a liberation while misery is visited on people who’ve attempted to live their lives as they believed God intended.
