A Simple Mistake.                      

A simple mistake.

My friend Käthe did something recently that was so impressive, I need to share it with you.

Käthe had brought her son over for a play date at our house. Her husband, Jeffery, stopped in for a quick visit, and then he went to work. Inadvertently, Jeffery took both his car keys and her car keys when he left.

None of us realized this until Jeffery was already at work an hour and a half away.

Käthe left him a message telling him of his error, but she didn’t shame him, hold it over his head, or let it ruin her day.

Instead, she spent the whole day with Jane, Emmett, and me.

She didn’t talk about him behind his back.

“It was a simple mistake,” she said.

We should all give others (and ourselves) the dignity of not being perfect.

With love,

Rabbi Brian

The 77% Weekly

The 77% Weekly: The Religion-Outside-The-Box Newsletter
helps people find and be with (the) God (of their understanding) 40 out of 52 weeks a year.

Why 77%?
Two reasons:
1) 40/52 = 0.76923 and it is sent every Monday except the last of each month.
2) In school 77% was a passing grade and ROTB wants to remind you that life isn’t graded, it’s pass/fail.

Religion-Outside-The-Box is a donation-supported,
non-denominational, internet-based, 501c3-tax exempt religious congregation.

Few problems are solved by an email your in-box.

This is an exception.

40 curiosity-satisfying, soul-nuturing messages from rB
Plus $130-savings on patience

Wonderful! You did it. Look for an email soon! (Unless you want to work on your patience, of course.)
