5 Sept 2021 - Fifteenth Sunday after Pentecost - Rosh Hashana - The biblical Feast of Trumpets, which occurs just before Yom Kippur and Sukkot, has evolved into a two-day holiday called Rosh HaShana, that is New Year. It is a time when the shofar is blown 100 times as a wake-up call before Yom Kippur and Sukkot. Rev. David Pileggi looks at three biblical uses of blowing the ram’s horn -- as a warning, a celebration, and at a king’s coronation -- and practical implications for us today.
Readings: Leviticus 23:23–25; Numbers 29:1–6; Psalm 98; Luke 1:46-55
