A Time for Turning
This week is Yom Kippur in the Jewish tradition, the holiest time of the year. It is a time of repentance and atonement. How might we open ourselves to humility and forgiveness?
It’s HOMECOMING SUNDAY! And there will be all kinds of excitement as we come together yet again to renew the bonds of affection that bind us as one and rededicate ourselves to the principles of our faith. There will be a great story for children of all ages, the choir will return from its summer hiatus, a glorious after-church event is planned, and we will rejoice in one another’s presence indeed!
A year ago on this Sunday we came together for the first time after Hurricane Harvey. Much has transpired during the past year but recovery is far from complete. We will share stories of grief and hope, light candles of memory and resolve, and join with other congregations who are holding similar observances in an interfaith meditation. Everyone is invited to participate. We were all affected by Harvey in one way or another.
