Autumn and The Days of Awe: Reflection, Repentance and Renewal

In the Jewish culture, today marks the beginning of The Days of Awe, a time of reflection, repentance and renewal.  From sundown on Rosh Hashanah (September 24th ) until sundown of Yom Kippur (October 4th ), observers will spend time in prayer  and introspection.  The Days of Awe are also a time of seeking reconciliation with someone.  On the tenth and final day the book is figuratively closed and its time to move on to a new year--no looking back.

I am not Jewish but I am enamored with the Jewish culture and its traditions.  One of the most important men in my life was a Jew.  He used Jewish rituals and traditions to teach others about his Father and the life he wants us to live.  The more we understand about this culture the more we can know what Jesus is trying to say to us.

 Regardless of your religious affiliation,  this is a great opportunity to clean out your brain closet! I found a great website that will prompt you to answer a question each day.  10Questions (10Q) will store this information and send it back to you a year later to see how far you have come.  You can sign up for the 10Q by clicking here.  I will also post the daily question if you prefer to follow on this website. 

Feel free to comment on the daily question.

I invite you to join me for the next 10 days of awe-inspired questions.

So here we go-

Day One: Describe a significant experience that has happened in the past year.

How did it affect you? Are you grateful? Relieved? Resentful? Inspired?
