|Just an image I found, not done by a child I know|
I know that Elul is over but Rabbi Phyllis I think you should consider some type Epilogue to blogging Elul. I have loved watching facebook posts of everyone's sermons, ones they gave or one they heard, great meals again either served or eaten. I even liked to see how tired everyone said they were after said activities. I think everyone blogging Elul should do one more Blog to wrap up their year. It would also give everyone discipline to do ONE more Blog. After blogging Elul I have fallen off the grid as many of us have. There is so much to do as a professional Jew, we just don't a minute to ourselves during Tishri, never mind time to blog. I do think it would be great to see how Blogging Elul paid off for those blogging and it would give the discipline for just one MORE Blog.
|Sermon Bingo is Genius|
I know for me I enjoyed the daily posts and it certainly got me in the frame of mind for the High Holy Days even though Rosh Hashanah was 2 days after Labor day. I had one friend, (Daniel Shore) who did a sermon Bingo on Rosh Hashanah and he asked friends on Facebook to let him know who had heard a sermon on DOMA, Syria or the 50th Anniversary of MLK's speech, I have a dream. Fascinating to see that many people had heard many of these same topics.
After blogging Elul I was in a good frame of mind to listen to wonderful sermons, start writing my weekly Email articles, and was able to get into the spirit much earlier.
