September 25 Service: To Forgive Ourselves and Each Other

September 29th at sundown is the beginning of the Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah, which marks the beginning of the “Days of Awe” which conclude on the holiest of all the Jewish holidays, Yom Kippur.  It is perhaps my favorite religious holiday season.  During the 10 “Days of Awe”, folks are invited to examine their relationships, discern where they have fallen short of the mark, seek forgiveness, forgive others and then move forward. On this Sunday, we will explore what it might be like if we could all forgive each other and truly move on. What might true forgiveness mean to each of us, our community and our world?

“Whenever we forgive, in small ways at home, or in great ways between nations, we free ourselves from the past.”   ~ Jack Kornfield
