The God Squad
The God Squad is not your average advice column. Rabbi Marc Gellman employs his years of religious and philosophical study and experience to answer reader questions on topical and spiritual issues, from interfaith marriage to news events. He also draws on the expertise of numerous advisors to offer authentic insights on the rich palette of faiths in America. Gellman writes in a lively, non-preachy style that speaks directly to readers. Special holiday messages.
The God Squad Samples
Q: Your recent answer about displaying religious holiday decorations was a little confusing. I work in a large university setting, and our campus proudly displays a menorah and a manger scene.
Q: We work in the health services office of a large university with a very diverse student population. A: In my opinion, you're right and they're wrong.
Next week, I hope each of you will pause at your Thanksgiving table before burying your faces in assorted flavored carbs to ask each diner to name something or someone for which or for whom they are thankful this year.
Q: I recently read an article about a man in a hospital who was so incapacitated that his body was useless. A: I study and work in the field of medical ethics. For centuries, death took its natural course after healing was no longer possible.
Q: I don't understand the biblical statement that "God created man in God's image."
Q: I'm Catholic and I've noticed that no established mainstream Catholic churches, synagogues or mosques put those catchy signs out front the way many Protestant churches do. A: You're right. Seriously, though, I'm ambivalent about church signs.
