This week has been one of history in the making as the first man of color stepped into the White House as president. I can?t imagine what pressure Barack Obama is experiencing. If I were him, I?d be searching for a mentor, one who has experience in leading a nation in turmoil, unsure of itself, facing new and unprecedented challenges. I would suggest our greatest national leader ? Moshe Rabeinu, Moses Our Teacher. How coincidental is it that our president takes office between last week?

Q: Why was Moses punished because he doubted water would arise in the desert? It seems like such a trivial reason for punishment after being a faithful servant for such a long time. — L., Ocala, Fla., via godsquadquestion@aol.com A: Moses' refusal to obey God's command at the waters of Meribah is really two nearly identical stories. In Exodus (17:5-7), God tells Moses to hit a rock and it yields water. Later, in Numbers (20:7-13), the people are thirsty again at Meribah, and this time God tells Moses to just speak to the rock — not a huge difference — but Moses hits the rock again instead of speaking to it. God is upset, and for this seemingly trivial mistake/disobedience Moses is refused entry into the Promised Land.

Danette Goulet NEWPORT BEACH -- Boisterous 2- and 3-year-olds built pyramids, suffered plagues and walked through the deserts of Egypt on Thursday in a reenactment of the story of Passover. The bright-eyed boys and girls had heard the stories of the Jewish people's liberation from slavery and flight from ancient Egypt, but to experience a "Passover pilgrimage" was an educational treat for them. "It was fun," said 3-year-old Zoe Condon before she hurried after Cantor Jonathan Grant, who was dressed as Moses.

This might hurt. But once it's over, we'll all feel better. Jerusalem, the blessed city, the witness to heaven's miracles, the center of faith, hope and despair, is not just important to Jews and Christians. It is significant to Muslims as well. Muslims just celebrated the anniversary of the Prophet Muhammad's Night Journey and Ascension from Mecca to Jerusalem to heaven on June 17, which this year was the 27th day of the Islamic lunar calendar month, Rajab. You almost don't want to believe it. I mean, how could you go from Mecca in Saudi Arabia, to Jerusalem to the seventh heaven and back to Mecca in one night?

Q: I have a congenital neuromuscular disease called Charcot-Marie-Tooth, which has led to a lot of abuse in my life — including my own father telling me to "pick up your God-damned feet, stupid!" My mom was big into faith healers and took me to a few to help my "odd walk," but to no avail. What I got from this was a hatred of God and the church because, as far as they were concerned, I didn't have enough faith. I didn't believe hard enough. I wasn't good enough. Once, in high school, two girls came up to me. I was quite psyched until one said, "We've noticed how you walk.

AT ISSUE: Catholic school leaders have allowed a local gay couple to enroll their two young adopted boys in a Catholic school -- St. John the Baptist -- despite the protests of some parents who want the children removed from the classrooms. Those parents have signed a letter demanding a pledge from the school that it will only accept families that live by Catholic doctrine, which says that homosexuality is sinful. Would you sign that letter? Why or why not?

Saturday marked the beginning of Passover, the preeminent holiday of the Jewish faith. Passover is commemorated with a celebration called a Seder. These celebrations are laden with symbolic foods and prayers. Matzo is the main food. It's an unleavened bread that symbolizes both the Jews hasty exit from Egyptian slavery and humility. Parsley, salt water, a bone of a lamb, a roasted egg, five glasses of wine, one for the prophet Elijah, ancient prayers and songs are all part of a Passover Seder.

God's message to humanity has taken on constantly morphing forms over time, from stone tablets to papyrus scrolls to gilt-edged books. For the Christian community, the story of the "Day of Pentecost" in the Book of Acts makes the case that there is no single sacred language or medium for communicating God's presence. Rather, the means by which one can experience God is expansive and inclusive of many forms. For me, one of the most promising forms today is the digital tablet. As I begin my service as the pastor at St. Mark Presbyterian Church in Newport Beach, I want to embrace digital tablets and other such devices as means of experiencing God's presence.

Dear God, we pray that you might receive in love the souls of those dear innocent people whom fate and fury took from their families and from our grieving country in Tucson, Ariz. We pray for Gabe Zimmerman, Phyllis Schneck, Christina Green, Dorothy Morris, Dorwin Stoddard and John Roll. We do not pray for "six people. " We pray for one person at a time. In your mercy. O Lord, shelter their souls in the world to come and take them close to you forever in heavenly peace. May their memories be for a blessing.

A recent study showed that Americans are critical of left-wing liberals and right-wing conservatives when it comes to injecting religion into government. The study, sponsored by two Pew organizations, found that 69% of respondents said liberals have gone "too far to keep religion out of school and government," while 49% contended that conservatives have gone "too far in imposing their religious values." What are your thoughts on these findings, and have you heard the same complaints from your flock?
