CONNECT WITH AISH DENVER


The World Stands on 3 Things:

TORAH | PRAYER | ACTS OF KINDNESS

TORAH

Connect to Self

The Torah is the blueprint of creation. It’s God’s instruction manual that contains all the secrets of the universe, including life-changing wisdom about marriage, parenting, how to be good and attain meaning. When we learn Torah, we are directly connecting to God, seeing the depth of His wisdom and learning to think how He thinks. It is a series of ongoing eureka moments.

PRAYER

Connect to God

When was the last time you had a real heart to heart with God? Not just recite the words in the prayer book, but tap into your inner core and share your deepest concerns, fears and thanks. Reconnect all the wondrous gifts you’ve received in your life back to their ultimate Giver, and feel the love that generates.  Try it (not in public please) and see if you feel more connected to God afterwards.

ACTS OF KINDNESS

Connect to Each Other

Perhaps the most direct way to connect to God is to perform a mitzvah and doing acts of kindness.  Give tzedakah, visit someone who is sick, say Shema, mark the Sabbath, these are all ways to connect to Hashem. When we do a mitzvah, we are performing with mind, body and soul, God’s will, thereby becoming like God and growing closer to Him. Since God is not physical, closeness is measured spiritually.
