On the morning of Yom Kippur, when God pretty much has the opportunity to command us to action, we hear a challenge instead: “I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and curse. Therefore choose life, that you and your offspring may live.” (Deuteronomy 30:19)
Choose life? Why not, “follow my laws to the letter, or else you will be punished?” Why not, “you have no choice but to do as I say,” because God is, after all, God? Why is choice so important? Because the truth is, we all have choices in life: where we live, with whom we develop relationships, where to work and yes, where to belong spiritually. Especially here in Central Jersey, where opportunities to find a spiritual home are plentiful, why choose TRT?
