A new Fear of Gd?


"To fear G-d [in our era] is to fear abandonment by G-d. The desolate soul is less frequently overwhelmed by G-d's numinous presence than by His thundering absence. In a word, the dominant emotion of spiritual apprehension is anxiety rather than fear."

(R' Shalom Carmy, "Yet My Soul Drew Back", Tradition 41:3)

Have a great day,
