Renewing Hope
The Rev. Suzelle Lynch
Unitarian Universalists draw inspiration from many sources of wisdom. Today we turn to Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year that falls at the beginning of the Jewish calendar month of Tishrei. Rosh Hashanah is a time of rejoicing and serious introspection, a time to take stock of one’s life. At the confluence of rejoicing and reflection, hope is renewed! Music from Kaleidoscope Worship Band and Jen Nicolosi, Lead Music Director.
