Upcoming Worship Services

This sermon was inspired by an article I saw written by Rabbi Steven Denker in September 2011.  The Rabbi wrote about the Days of Awe as a time for introspection and atonement.  More importantly, what can we do to change behaviors that are hurtful?  It is not enough to simply turn away from hurtful deeds, nor is it appropriate to blame others.  We must turn away from those behaviors and intentionally turn toward corrective behavior.  In that way we can restore balance to creation.

If you’ve ever accompanied someone so spiritually depleted they have no hope left for themselves or the world, you know how important your presence can be.  It can actually be awe-inspiring.  The seemingly small act of holding the hope for another person can heal not only that person, but the whole world.
