Pause For Thought
From Rabbi Pete Tobias, of the Liberal Synagogue, Elstree:
"It’s been several weeks since the last Jewish festival, but we’ve just reached another one. The festival of Shavu’ot – known as Pentecost – begins this evening.
In biblical times, this was the harvest of the first fruits, but the ancient Rabbis of Judaism gave it extra significance by declaring that this was the occasion when the Israelites received the Ten Commandments at Mount Sinai. And so we celebrate the revealing of God’s instructions to our ancestors, which have been passed down through the generations since that mysterious and awesome moment.
According to the account in the book of Exodus, the event was witnessed by all the people and was accompanied by earthquake, thunder and lightning. Many years later, when the prophet Elijah visited the same place, he too experienced God: not in the fire or the earthquake, but in the still small voice that spoke to him after they had passed.
I remember as a child reading a picture bible which portrayed God as speaking to people in bold capital letters in the midst of a cloud from which emanated rays of light. I can honestly say that I’ve never seen – or heard – God speaking in such a manner.
But in my teaching days, I’ve seen a child’s face light up with sudden understanding of a concept that has previously eluded them, as a rabbi I’ve seen marrying couples look at one another with eyes that speak of a mystical connection, and at times I've heard music or enjoyed scenery that has moved me and touched my soul.
So as I prepare to celebrate with my community this evening, I think I prefer the simplicity of Elijah’s vision to the divine pyrotechnics of Mount Sinai. Whether it be a sudden understanding of long division, the joy of loving and being loved, or the recognition of beauty in our world, God's still small voice can speak to us at any time: all we have to do is listen."
