Happy New Year!

My company "celebrated" year end on Friday and some of us in the Contracts/Finanace area are sending "Happy New Year" greetings to each other today.

And, of course, tonight at Sundown begins Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year.

In both cases the books are closed on the old year and a new year is begun. Time to finish up, to reflect, to cast out. Save the good, discard the bad. (Is it a coincidence that the festival of Discardia finishes today? I think not.) Time to take on better ways, better choices -- a fresh, clean start.

Apples and honey and clean, new file folders to all!

L'shanah tovah.

(Next week from Ask an Episcopalian - "What is Yum Kippur and should I wish my Jewish friends a Happy Day of Atonement?")

Love it; just goes to show that we Episcopalians have one foot in the Old Testament and the other foot in the New Testament. Trouble is, we don't always have the pertinent details.
