I am a Ph.D. student at Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion. I study the History of Biblical Interpretation, which includes Jewish and Christian interpretations of the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament. My interests are religion, politics, TV, movies, and reading.
We had our Mother’s Day service at church this morning. I appreciated
my pastor’s point that, in a world that is often a cold and lonely
place, it’s good if we have a mother who cares for us. I find that to
be true in my own life. In the outside world, I’m liked if I’m
brilliant or witty or meeting people’s expectations. But I don’t have
to earn my Mom’s love, for I already have it.
