Welcome to Darash Chai
In the beginning there were two trees in the Garden of Eden. One, a tree that brought life. The other, a tree that brought death. The serpent showed up and placed the focus of mankind on the tree that brought death. Is it possible that we as a race have been focusing on the wrong tree. We talk about good and evil, right and wrong. We discuss what is moral and what is immoral. All of these questions, however, were on the tree that brought death.
Perhaps it is time to shift our focus. To stop looking to the tree of death by asking the question of good and evil. Rather, let’s start asking the question of life and death. If we can shift our assumptions on this most basic of questions, we can change our entire paradigm. If we change our paradigm, we can change the world.
What will be the result? I do not know, but you are invited to come along and join us as we Seek Life.
- S2 E19: When Tradition Meets Life – Job 8
As Job’s friends continue to counsel him after the great losses that he has suffered, they continue to go back to the tried and true understanding of God that is contrary to Job’s lived experience. Bildad, like Eliphaz before, points to the current understanding of God as the only way to interpret Job’s circumstances, and in doing so he pushes just a bit further. Now, instead of it being Job’s own understanding of God, Bildad points to the tradition of their fathers.
