What to do about refugees?

Pray. Pray! 

Maybe you don’t need a reminder, but I do. Almost none of us are in a position to do anything else. We can vote, we can argue, we can maybe collect money or baby carriers or signatures or other signatures or bug-out bags — but if you believe in God, then doing any of these things without praying is like shopping for furniture when you’re homeless. Prayer is where we ought to live, where we ought to start our day from and where we come home to at night. Prayer is the foundation under our feet and the roof over our heads. Going it alone, without prayer, turns us all into refugees.

    Word, Simcha.

    Just a head’s up: if you live in an urban area, contact your local mosque because they might have a refugee family that they are helping. The one by my in-law’s house is and we were able to donate some furniture to help them out.
