Shabbat Ki Tavo

Duet. 26:1-29:8
Friday, Sept. 8 
Candle Lighting time 6:58 p.m.
 
Vicki Baum quoting Leon Gutterman wrote “You don’t get ulcers from what you eat. You get them from what’s eating you.” Years ago, in an article in the magazine Focal Point, Paul Borden gave some helpful suggestions for worriers:
 
Start a worry list. Write down what you’re worried about. The bills. Your job. Your children or grandchildren. Your health. The future.
 
Turn your worry list into a prayer list. Ask the Lord to work in those situations you’re concerned about. Pray specifically for your needs and depend on Him.
 
Turn your prayer list into an action list. If you have any insight that there’s something you can do about your cares, do it. As we turn our worries into prayer and action, Borden says, “Paralyzing anxiety can be replaced by concern for the responsibilities of life.”
 
Don’t wait for the last moment. Even though the High Holidays are two weeks away, why not start your list right now in preparation for the New Year 5778?
 
Shabbat Shalom,
 
Rabbi Greene
 
Thank you for all prayers and good wishes as I was recovering from my bicycle accident in Israel. I'm glad to be home and back to work.
