When it’s good, it’s good. When it’s bad…

I was listening to the 18Forty episode with the couple where the husband has lost his faith and it suddenly dawned on me how much my faith is predicated on a lack of tragedy.

I do not know if my Judaism would survive what that family went through – losing a one year old grandchild, a young son and the husbands father in a short period of time.

I often wonder how people kept their faith rising out of the ashes of the Holocaust.

Listening to the wife’s perspective, she has effectively found a parent figure she lacked in life in Hashem. I realize that’s authentic to her but I do wonder if this is how the human spirit copes.

I guess I want to open up the discussion to you – I realize when things are stable, I’m more inclined to believe. And maybe, I’m waiting on something to shatter my belief, to free me from these obligations. I don’t know.
