Welcome to another installment of NURTURE THE WOWCAST! To catch up on what you’ve missed, go here. My book is also being give away by Kveller and the Jewish Book Council here–you have 35 hours left to enter!
This week, we’re going to be talking about the magical lenses that kids have installed—the ones that make it possible to be enchanted by a stick, or an old box, or the ways the leaves shake in the wind. Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel, one of the greatest theologians of the 20th century, has a little advice about how, exactly, we can learn a little bit—or maybe a lot—from our kids about how us grown-ups can get that wonder back, too.
Tune in below, and don’t forget to preorder your copy of “Nurture the Wow: Finding Spirituality in the Frustration, Boredom, Tears, Poop, Desperation, Wonder, and Radical Amazement of Parenting,” and maybe another copy or two for a friend who could use a little inspiration.
