Shana Tova!

Rosh Hashanah is upon us. The New Year traditionally for Jews all over the world, and a time of renewal and looking forward to a year ahead with faith and steadfastness.
The Feast of Trumpets is celebrated with traditional prayer and liturgy, and the sound of the Shofar.
In our case it was the sound of many shofars at our service last night where 700 or more worshippers came to celebrate the erev Shabbat and Rosh Hashanah.
A great evening of music, worship and a message that spoke to laying your burden on the One who came to take our burdens. It is important not to attempt do it all on our own, trying to let our pride make us the fortress we are not meant to be.
This message hits most of us where we live, our pride not letting us give it up to the Holy One of Israel, and waiting until we are in the proverbial fox hole situation to pray and look for HIS guidance.
My prayer is that we would have the insight to let His strength be ours.
May the new year to come be a safe and healthy one for you and yours.
Waiting for the sound of the Shofar!!!

Hello Alan David!

I think that the website www.netzarim.co.il will be of interest to you and your readers. It contains research about Ribi Yehoshua (the Messiah) from Nazareth and what he taught.

Have a nice day! Anders Branderud
