"God recognizes you."

Yesterday, catching the tail end of a story presented on WBUR (never could find it to relisten), a heart-wrenching account of a Jewish man who, growing up, had to lie about his religious affiliation , as it were, pretending to be Christian in order to save his life . . . Today, struggling with his faith . . . he was told by a Rabbi, 

 "It doesn't matter that you don't recognize God; God recognizes you."

Marash Girl was reminded of that very sentiment in the Christian community, words she, herself, in fact, has used with those of her friends who are aetheists.

"Even if you don't believe in God, God still believes in you."
