West Shore Unitarian Universalist Church

Can’t Atone by Phone
by Reverend Kathleen Rolenz

September 23, 2012

Last year, the Catholic church officially sanctioned the use of a "Confession" app which helps you keep track of all the wrongs you have done since your last confession. Jews can send a prayer via their smart phone which then can be printed out by a rabbi in Jerusalem and placed in the Western Wall. In an era when so much interaction is done in cyberspace, the Jewish act of atonement still requires face to face communication. This Sunday we'll participate in some of the great rituals of Judaism's Yom Kippur service as we begin again with the "new" year.
