O My G-d – by Rev. Bill Graves and Rev. Lita Malone
The title to this service borrows from the Jewish tradition of refraining from saying or writing a full word representing the source of all which is unknowable and unnamable. But, even while acknowledging our inherent limitations in this subject area, some of us cannot help pondering questions such as: Is there an ultimate reality to put my faith in beyond myself? What gives me “hope” (our KVUUC theme of the month)? Who or what lays claim to my life, my heart? Why do I (Rev. Bill) rarely use the word “G-d” in services?” How do I (Rev. Lita) deal with that word when I encounter it?
