Week 4 - Week of Netzach: Endurance, Vision, Eternity

The fourth week of the Omer brings us into the realm of Netzach – Endurance, Vision, Eternity

What is it that calls us

To lift our eyes

And see an expanse of possibilities?

To believe, to trust, to imagine that

We can–and must–step into the river

And change its course?

Netzach reveals what our souls know:

Everything is connected,

Intertwined,

Interdependent.

Woven together with all life,

We are here for our short time

And everything we do matters.

Our choices, actions and devotion

Continue to create the world.


In this moment in our lives, in the life of our country and our world,

Let us not be fooled into thinking there is nothing we can do.

Everything we do matters.

Every moment of connection creates strength.

Every act of kindness, compassion and generosity endures.

In the words of the psalmist, Let us act with justice grounded in deep faith. (Psalm 119:138)

And let us remember that Love extends beyond time and space. Love is forever. (Psalm 118:1)


Practices for the Week of Netzach

Let this be a week in which we practice radical kindness. In our encounters each day, let us move slowly and pause long enough to discern: How can I act with generosity in this moment? What is the compassionate and loving response?
