Old structures are falling away. New ones are forming.
We still have a chance to play a crucial role in the outcome.
But first we need to get-it about the "interdependent web" thing.
Sub-atomic/molecular/quantum physics isn't as difficult as it sounds.
Rev. Chip Wright, with Joel Gluck, Worship Associate
Robert Reich, an award winning economist, says that we have a moral crisis with 'insider trading, wall streets gambling
addiction, corporate pay offs and the billionaire take over of our democracy.’ which doesn’t have anything to do with gay
marriage, abortion, or global warming. Who’s making those connections and why? What are your thoughts?
Rev. Stanley R. Stefancic, with Bev Munyon, Worship Associate
The Jewish New Year begins with 10 days of repentance. The first two days are called Rosh Hashanah, which literally means “the beginning of the new year.” The ten days ends with Yom Kippur, The Day of Atonement.
I acknowledge these Holy Days in their universal religious dimensions. This is the time of year to do some self-searching, to think about the ways in which we have fallen short of our own aspirations, and the ways in which we have hurt others. It is an opportunity to forgive those who have injured us and to ask for forgiveness. It is a good time to wipe the slate clean and begin a new year with a compassionate frame of mind and heart, to let go of resentments and grudges in San Rafael.
