“This month brings the Jewish High Holy Days—the New Year, Rosh Hashanah, followed ten days later by Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement. The days in between are known as the Days of Turning—a time devoted to fixing what has broken in one’s relationships. There is wisdom in admitting that our brokenness is how to make a new start…
Mystical Judaism teaches that the Ark of the Covenant is a symbol of the human heart. And there, in our hearts, brokenness and wholeness live side by side; we carry them wherever we go.”

The VUU is our weekly live online talkshow specifically geared for Unitarian Universalists. A new episode is broadcast Thursdays at 11 am Eastern (USA) on YouTube or Google+. We invite a wide variety of guests to discuss religion, spirituality, Unitarian Universalism, multi-faith issues, social justice, and whatever else seems interesting!
This is an experimental 8 week worship program. For more information http://www.sundaysoul.org
“We must embrace the jagged edges, embrace the broken pieces. Forgive and be forgiven. This is the path to wholeness. We must hold each other and all beings tenderly, for we are one.”
” In this homily from the CLF worship at the UUA General Assembly in 2009, Jane writes a primer on Unitarian Universalism, with my favorite message that beauty and fun are really important to UUs. —LD”
Hope this explains more about our religion for those who are unsure and gives a boost for those who are.
