Repentance and Repair: Right Relations in Community

Our world is often unapologetic. People frequently think forgiveness should be automatically given with no change in the heart but only by uttering the words, ‘I am sorry’. Harm gets compounded without change. Our UU Common Read for 2023-24 offered Jewish philosopher Maimonides’ five steps for communities to look at repairing harm. Often people skip these steps because they are difficult. Yet our UU Values call us to sit with the complex. This deeper dive into this Jewish study gives us a tool to navigate troubled waters, in community, during anxious times and to do it all with love. Join us on this journey.
