Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement based on Leviticus 23:27, most important of the Jewish holidays the, Sabbath of Sabbaths, was last Wednesday.
The Jewish “Days of Awe” begin with Rosh Hashanah, the first day of the seventh month (Tishrei). The next ten days, representing the last ten days Moses spent on Mount Sinai receiving the second set of commandments, are spent preparing for Yom Kippur. Yom Kippur, literally meaning tenth day – Day of Atonement, is the day when a person’s fate is sealed for the coming year.
This last week the Jewish Community celebrated Yom Kippur starting on the evening of September 15th and lasting until the evening of September 16th. According to Jewish tradition on Rosh Hashanah is when God writes a person’s fate in the Book of Life. During the next ten days a person searches his soul and determines to change behavior, to seek forgiveness for wrongs against God and other people, and set themselves on a new path. The 24 hours of Yom Kippur is the time set aside for the prayer, petitions, and confessions to God, and hopefully setting the person on the correct path.
Unlike the Jewish faith where actions rest with the person our atonement and forgiveness rest in the person of Jesus, God’s Son who died for our sins and transgressions. All we have to do is believe and live according to God’s guidance.
Join us as we celebrate the renewal of life which comes from living in God’s peace, with the September 19 Service.
