It’s been a long week, and I know I’ve been missing, so I decided to do a quick post.
I don’t have much to say at the moment, so I thought that I’d share some pictures that do.
I can’t directly link the picture to this blog, but take a look at the fourth one. Something about it just moves me. And it makes me think about who we turn to when things get really rough. Not just when catastrophes happen, but when we face problems even in our everyday lives. God?
I think that this picture really shows the innate need that people have for something greater than themselves. And I think that this need applies to more than just religion; I think that people connect to a movement like feminism becuase they feel that it is something bigger than them that they can hold onto for the ride, and that they can trust to not necessarily fix, but at least attempt to fix, the problems that they feel are present in their lives.
And I guess that’s what we’re doing here. We’re looking to Judaism and to feminism to address the issues in our lives. And hopefully other people’s lives, too.
