Help us damage Your mistakes
October 27, 2011 § 1 Comment
I’ve no clue if Adam Levin’s book The Instructions is any good, but a friend of mine sent this passage to me yesterday, as inspirational material for my return to Oakland. I quite like it:
“Blessings of The Instructions and the Gurionic War”
So let us mistake destruction for reparation with no greater frequency than we would blood for loyalty, loyalty for love, or books for weapons. Help us to be more scholarly. Help us damage Your mistakes. Show us, Adonai, when to set aside our books for weapons, for sometimes scholars must become soldiers, Adonai, for sometimes only soldiers can fix You, Adonai, and only while fixing can we forgive You, Adonai, for those times when only soldiers can fix You, Adonai.
