Yom Kippur

Hey all. I know there is a wide range of folks out there who observe the Yomim Noraim in some way. Many people have a lot of different ideas of how to observe Yom Kippur in lieu of our present situation (sacrifice of Yeshua & most of us living in a non-Temple period outside the Land). I’m curious to hear how you (or your fellowship) are going to observe Yom Kippur next week. Let me know by posting here.

RSS Apology

I just want to apologize to those cool people who use an RSS aggregator to access my blog. When I made the switch to WordPress at the end of August, I failed to redirect the old RSS feed to the new one. So, if you are using some type of RSS reader and this is the first post you’ve seen in nearly a month, you should be able to see at least the last 15 posts on your reader now, and you’ll have to manually visit the site if you want to go back further than this. Thanks to Pierre for letting me know about this problem.

Shanah Tovah!

One Man Down

Sad news today. Justin Johnson has decided to take his blog down due to lack of time to keep it updated. Justin had some great insights and wisdom in a lot of different areas. However, I know he is not just hiding out. He’s stepping up to the plate in many areas, including his commitments as a husband, a father, and community leader for Ateret Yeshua, not to mention being a bandmate of Arba Minim. Be sure to keep him in your prayers.

Hats off to ya, Justin. May Hashem continue to guide your footsteps in all to which you put your hands. Keep us posted.
