My fellow CPE interns are wonderful, 5 are from VTS, Virginia Theological Seminary, and one already out in the field awaiting ordination. Actually, my first unit back in '08 was with VTS seminarians as well, but only 3 that time. As before, I am the only Jew.
Everyday at services one line in the Ashrei stands out to me in a way that it never has before.
It makes me appreciate our tradition - how fortunate I am to be able to find inspiration and guidance for my daily professional life within my daily prayers.
More on this later...
סוֹמֵךְ יְיָ לְכָל הַנֹּפְלִים, וְזוֹקֵף לְכָל הַכְּפוּפִים:
Strong support to all who fall, GOD raises up the humble and the lame.
