With A Pen In Hand – Or – Why I Keep My “Service of God” Notebooks

Apr 2nd, 2010 by Rabbi Simcha Weinberg in Holidays, Prayer, Reflections & Observations
“With a pen in hand I have successfully stormed bulwarks from which others armed with sword and excommunication have been repulsed.” G.C. Lichtenberg (1780)

Solomon’s Temple did not survive the Babylonians. His pen survived the Babylonians, the Persians, Greeks, Romans, Crusades, pogroms, Germans, and everyone else who attempted to destroy his wisdom. We spend lifetimes attempting to discern all the wisdom that poured from his pen, searching for direction and insight. Solomon’s pen still lives.

Solomon’s Temple did not survive more than 410 years, but the words he wrote describing the connection with God we all experienced on the day of the Temple’s dedication, are as alive today as they were more than three thousand years ago.

I pray and experience a powerful sense of connection. I am blessed with insights. I take those experiences and insights and use my mighty pen to record the moment. Those written notes pulsate with passion. They are not only alive even many years after being written, they inspire more insights and plant the seeds for even greater experiences. They are a song that stimulates more songs. They are a song of songs.
