Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement
Today, September 24th, is the Jewish observance of Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement. It is a day of fasting and self-examination, reflection on one’s actions of the past year. All of us can remember times when we could have done better than we did. We will consider these times — what scripture says about them, what Jesus said about them. What does it really mean to forgive ourselves?
We are excited to welcome our former Spiritual Teacher Rev. Barbara Cawthorne Crafton back to Marble for this special class!
