When the Well of Being Seen Runs Dry

With all the things we face in our lives, how do our souls become whole again? This is the question asked each year during the Jewish High Holy Days and every year, some of the liturgy lifts up all the ways people of The Hebrew Bible hurt each other. Stories that acknowledge that each of us have moments when our soul or self is not whole, when the well of being seen-runs dry. In this service we will read the Rosh Hashanah story of Hagar and Sarah full of the power dynamics of patriarchy to explore the responses that shore up the resilience of the human spirit and to discover what in the story speaks to us today.
