Behold I Make All Things New: Spirit and Change
Speaker: Rabbi Dr. Michael Panitz
The Bible speaks a lot about newness and change. “If anyone is in Christ, there is a new creation: everything old has passed away; see, everything has become new!” (2 Corinthians 5:17). You cannot put new wine in old wineskins.
Social media, climate change and now a pandemic are creating changes all around us. Our concept of church or synagogue as a place where people gather physically is shifting to both a physical and virtual reality affecting all facets religious life and community. As one New Testament Scholar wrote: “Resurrection is not resuscitation.” What is old dies and something new emerges. This journey involves all the Kubler-Ross stages of grief that accompany a death: anger, denial, bargaining, depression and ultimately acceptance.
Join Rabbi Michael Panitz of Temple Israel virtually this Sunday as he reflects theologically on one aspect of this period of change: climate change, which is increasingly impacting our lives. Rabbi Panitz puts on Biblical lenses to respond to the sobering scientific information on the changing climate which Professor Plag brought to us in his recent Sunday Forum lectures.
Join the Sunday Forum Zoom meeting this Sunday at 10:45am here.

Zoom Guidelines & Tips
Since we have been fortunate enough to continue virtually connecting as a parish family through Zoom, we wanted to provide some helpful guidelines & tips. In the video below Will Lee and Emily Stuart answer some common questions about how we use Zoom for our parish.
- You do not need to have a Zoom account to participate
- You can access the link either through your smartphone or your computer
- If you use your smartphone, you should download the Zoom app beforehand
- You can enable both audio and video, or just audio if you prefer not to be seen
- You can also call the phone number below (One tap mobile) if you have problems accessing the link
- Use the mute feature when you are not talking—this will make the call better for everyone
- If you have trouble connecting (some people can connect their video but not their audio), leave the meeting and try again
