Over the coming three days, we invite you to examine your surroundings:
the people, nature, and internal forces that give you strength.
We will do this by exploring three blessings from the traditional daily morning liturgy.
“Blessed are You, G-d, Sovereign of the universe, Who has created me according to His will.”
“Blessed are You, G-d, Sovereign of the universe, Who removes sleep from my eyes and slumber from my eyelids.”
“Blessed are You, G-d, Sovereign of the universe, Who spreads forth the earth above the waters.”
On Sunday we’ll practice gratitude for people, each created according to G-d’s will and in the Divine Image.
On Monday we will mark Martin Luther King Day and open our eyes to others while recognizing the gifts of taking action and of rest and renewal.
On Tuesday and in anticipation of Tu B’Shevat, we will recognize and give thanks for the natural world around us, paying closer attention to the wonder of our environment.
