    First of all, they are so well written, and often are very inspiring as to the hope that I too hold for a time of peace for all mankind.

    Also, they have either taught me or inspired me to learn the meaning of many of the words that you use that were unfamiliar to me, as a Christian. This is of course, good for my elderly brain, but also makes the Jewish religion more familiar, and I think that is a good thing.

    Finally, your posts just bring things to mind for me. For example today, the piece about Rabbi Akiva brough to mind the first prayer I was taught to pray as a child, at bedtime. It was "Now I lay me down to sleep. I pray the Lord my soul to keep. If I should die before I wake, I pray the Lord my soul to take. If I should live for other days, I pray the Lord to guide my ways." This may sound trite or saccharine to your ears, but to me it was a reminder that I no longer always pray before I sleep, and that it is probably a good thing to do so!
