Check out this piece in Religion & and Ethics on Leonard Cohen and the troubles we make for ourselves. We breach the personal and political relationships that make the world work. But there is light if we choose to see it.
Tonight, the Jewish High Holidays begin. Leonard Cohen wrote this about God: “Not knowing where to go, I go to you. Not knowing where to turn, I turn to you… I travel on a hair to you… I go through a pinhole of light. Blessed are you, who waits in the world.” (Book of Mercy, 1984).
