“Forgiveness and Wholeness”
Multigenerational Worship Service led by Marion Hirsch and Rev. Thom Belote
Join us for a Multigenerational worship service inspired by the Jewish High Holy Day of Yom Kippur. We will explore together how we can move towards healing and wholeness in our lives.
MUSIC NOTES: This Sunday, Music Director Glenn Mehrbach will lead the Family Choir and the congregation in two songs written for Yom Kippur, by Michael Hunter Ochs and Eliana Light. We’ll use the Hymn Sing at the beginning for hymns of healing and new beginnings, and to introduce melodies we’ll sing during the service.
WE ARE A WELCOMING CONGREGATION
We are a congregation that has historically stood for the civil rights of all people, especially those affected by racism and homophobia. We are a Welcoming Congregation, celebrating and affirming the active presence in our congregation of gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and heterosexual members and friends and their families. We are actively engaged in dialogue about how to be a more racially diverse, multicultural, anti-oppressive congregation.
