Interfaith Story Circle

Forgiveness: Requesting, Receiving, Giving, September 14, 2021 7:15 – 8:45 p.m.

Please join us for our monthly Zoom meeting.

“Please forgive me” and “I forgive you” are powerful expressions, but forgiveness is often difficult to ask for, give, or receive. Asking God for forgiveness might be easier than asking the person who was offended or harmed. Forgiving ourselves is often harder still. Most religious and cultural traditions provide guidance on how to seek forgiveness and how to provide it.

With the forthcoming Jewish holiday of Yom Kippur–the Day of Atonement–in mind, Sandy Schuman, our featured teller will share stories of forgiveness from the Jewish tradition. A popular local teller, Sandy tells stories about songs and songwriters, personal adventures, historical sagas, and folk tales. He is a winner of the St. Louis Jewish Storytelling Contest, has been featured at various festivals and conferences and at Caffè Lena, Proctors, Tellabration, and Limmud Boston. You can learn more about him at .

Come share your stories related to the theme, or just come to listen. 

Either way, you will be warmly welcomed.

Free and Open to the Public
