I went to Yom Kippur services (the first night) in a synagogue for the first time in many years. I'm still trying to decide whether I enjoyed it, though I certainly didn't dislike it. The rabbi's sermon referenced a book he read by Brene Brown called "Rising Strong" in which, he said, the author suggests going through life assuming that most people are doing the best they can. I think it's an interesting approach and actually it's one which I think I mostly do already. What do you think of the idea?
