God's Order of Being, The Kingdom of God, part 2

In the second part of chapter nine, I look at some if the negative and joy-destroying choices that people can take without God, how Torah once again provides us with patterns of life that mximise mutual blessing.

In memory of what God has done connected to designated times, and in prophetic foreshadowing concerning what God will yet do, we enrich all of life with meaning.

Now I talk about times and seasons: rites of passage and life-cycle events - even blessing God in the kaddish in the face of death.

The Bible and Jewish tradition teach that good deeds, mitzvot, done in faith bring blessing to God and one another.

Next, I move to consider the Age to Come and the blessings which will flow in that era:

My premise is that the Everlasting World will be one that is analagous to this world ... more variety, not less, more arrangements of interdependence for mutual blessing.

Next, part three of "God's Order of Being, The Kingdom of God", chapter 9.
