As each Labor Day rolls around, aren’t most of us reminded of new beginnings … of kids going off to school. It’s an important life milestone – each year when the new year begins. And when so much is possible as the season turns and as the Jewish people mark the beginning of another holy year. What is newly shining in your life at this time of the year? How have all the new beginnings you’ve had in your life – added up to the one you face right now? Thank you to Canadian singer/songwriter and UU minister, Lynn Harrison who wrote this beautiful song, "Happy First Day of School". May all of us have a happy year, gold stars, and new lessons…
