The God Questions

This Sunday I'll be leading the second of two sessions on "The God Questions," as we'll discuss some of the basic questions people of all ages ask about God and Jewish belief. Attendance at session #1 is not a prerequisite to come to session #2.

The questions to be covered include:

How do we know there really is a God?
Where does God come from?
If there is on God, why are there so many religions?
Does God care who wins the World Series or Super Bowl?
Can praying make someone better (well)?

If you would like to look at the questions and my proposed responses, you can see part one here, part two here, part three here and part four here, as recorded in prior Shabbat-O-Grams. I’ve tried to respond to the questions in a manner that would be comprehensible either to a child or an adult. The answers are far from comprehensive, but they point us in the right direction. At the session, feel free to focus in on any of the questions.
