September 16: “Repentance and Atonement”, Rev. Amy Brooks

Listen to this sermon * Subscribe to our sermon podcast *

The Jewish holiday of Rosh Hashanah begins on sundown this day and ends ten days later with Yom Kippur. These high holy days mark a time of introspection and personal inventory of the past year in the Jewish community. Join us as we learn about this time of repentance and atonement and what it might offer to us as Unitarian Universalists.

Our service begins at 11 a.m. in the Lodge at Woodlawn School, just north of Davidson. Find us.

  • Nursery for ages 0-PreK starting at 10:45 a.m, in the classroom adjacent to the Lodge.
  • Religious Exploration for children, grades K-2 and 3-5, leaving the service after story time.
  • Religious Exploration for adults, 9:45 a.m. A continuation of our discussion on “Ethics From the Margins”, ethics viewed from the perspectives of those on the margins, those who, while their options and choices are narrowed by oppression, may choose to respond to situations and circumstances with actions that are vibrant, life-filled, and affirming of individual and collective agency and humanity and the idea that all ethics are grounded in the lived experience of the poor, the marginalized, and the disenfranchised. Secondarily, this ethical system challenges those who are privileged by the dominant culture to educate themselves and others about the view from the margins.
    Starting this week, nursery and childcare are available during adult R.E. – parents, come join us!
