There’s a phrase that has been echoing through my mind, as we start the Torah again this Shabbat.
Chaos. Tohu v’vohu.
I have questions. Why would God create chaos and then form it into order? Why not just create the order? And if the chaos was there before God started creating…well, where did it come from? Who created the chaos?
I’m not sure it matters. Confronted by chaos? Make order out of it. Is it your closet? Is it your garage? Is it our society? In my case, I say yes to the first two. As for teh society? I can’t do that by myself.
