Let me tell you a true story. Andy Rashbass, the younger son of the late Cyril Rashbass z’l who contributed so much to Pinner Shul’s development, was home on vacation from Cambridge. He came to shul and sat beside me as usual.
What made that Shabbat morning memorable was Andy’s question which followed his greeting of ‘good shabbas’.
‘Robin’ he said ‘don’t you wonder why, when you do something really wrong, you are NOT immediately struck by a bolt of lightning?’
