Happy Rosh Hashanah

It’s hard to believe but three years ago I wrote this post in honor of Rosh Hashanah.  A few days later I gave my famous Tashlikh Communion Devotional, in which I asked the congregation to symbolically cast their sins off in the the water (Micah 7:18-20) as is the Jewish practice.  It seemed like a good idea at the time, but it was unfortunately met with little enthusiasm and caused a few to wonder who this heretic giving the communion devotional was. Looking back, it still seems like it was a good idea, but what can you do.
Today, in honor of Rosh Hashanah, whether your a Jew, Christian, Muslim, or whatever, I encourage you to take some time and think about last year’s failings, shortcomings and sins.  After you’ve done that cast them aside and ask for forgiveness.  I’m sure you’ll feel much better about yourself.

  1. LAUSD gets the day off because so many teachers/faculty are Jewish thats its cheaper to give em the day off rather then employing all the substitutes. How bout that for a random fact.
