"Yom Kippur & Welcoming Forgiveness" by Intern Minister Sunshine Jeremiah Wolfe. Every year in preparation for Yom Kippur, Jewish people engage in acts of repentance. They offer prayers, engage in acts of charity, and ask for forgiveness from people and God. Welcoming asks that we acknowledge our own failings and take actions that move us into healthier relationships. What does the wisdom of this Holy Day offer us for understanding welcoming through our imperfections? What healing and joy can be found in forgiveness?
