Dear Rusty,

I thoroughly enjoyed your article! Also, “on Being” is a fantastic podcast platform, I listen all the time, & the one with Elizabeth Gilbert, several times, absolutely all thumbs up! 👍🏼

Your beginning reminded me of a joke: a rabbi was talking to a Jewish acquaintance of his, telling him he should join a synagogue since Judaism is a community religion. The other man smiled, and said, “No thanks, Rabbi, I find synagogues full of hypocrites.” The rabbi shrugged, “So what’s one more?”

Ha! Anyways, we find god, or grace, or faith, or spirit, whenever, but the main thing to do is to keep writing! Write on, my brother!
