"All the World is a Narrow Bridge . . .
. . . and the main thing is not to be afraid"
Those are the words of Rabbi Nachman of Bratslov describing the power of hope over fear. Appropriate words for this coming week.
These words have been going through my head lately, albeit in a different context. On our trip to and from Vancouver we went over a lot of bridges--narrow bridges, wide bridges; little bridges, big bridges; steel bridges, concrete bridges; old bridges, new bridges.
