Join us Sunday, October 9, 10:30 am for “Chesed”, Forgiveness, Grace and Gratitude with Rev. Diane Rollert and music by Sandra Hunt, Gary Russell and Maider Martineau. There’s a common assumption that grace is a Christian concept, while Jews and Unitarian Universalists share a common focus on works and justice. Yet the Hebrew word chesed, which is often translated as “mercy” or “loving-kindness”, can also be translated as “grace”. In this period of Thanksgiving and the Jewish High Holy Days, as Yom Kippur approaches, we take this time to consider the many interpretations of grace and whether grace can have meaning for us, whether we are atheists, agnostics, theists, or simply consider ourselves “spiritual but not religious.”
Sacred Stories will meet Tuesday, October 4 at 12 pm. Chant to Meet the Day will gather on Friday, October 7 at 7:30 am. The Social and Environmental Concerns Committee will meet at 12:15 pm on Sunday, October 9 as well as the Sunday Explorations theme group at the same time.
