A Woman’s Meditation

By Ruth F. Brin, z”l

When men were children, they thought of God as a
       Father;
When men were slaves, they thought of God as a
       Master;
When men were subjects, they thought of God as a
       King.
But I am a woman, not a slave, not a subject,
not a child who longs for God as father or mother.

I might imagine God as teacher or friend, but those
       Images,
like king, master, father or mother, are too small for
       me now.

God is the force of motion and light in the universe;
God is the strength of life on our planet;
God is the power moving us to do good;
God is the source of love springing up in us.
God is far beyond what we can comprehend.
