Welcome to the Connecticut Korean Presbyterian Church's annual event - the 10 Days of Awe!
Immerse yourself in a unique spiritual experience as we embark on a ten-day journey of introspection, prayer, repentance, and renewal. The 10 Days of Awe hold great significance within our faith community and provide an opportunity for deep contemplation and connection with the divine.
The Significance of 10 Days of Awe
The 10 Days of Awe, also known as the Yamim Noraim, are observed from Rosh Hashanah (Jewish New Year) to Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement). These ten days hold immense importance for the Jewish community, symbolizing a time of reflection, repentance, and making amends with oneself and others.
Connecticut Korean Presbyterian Church embraces this tradition as a way to foster spiritual growth, strengthen our relationship with God, and reconcile with one another during this sacred period. It is a time to seek forgiveness, extend forgiveness, and strive to become better individuals.
What to Expect During the 10 Days
Powerful Prayer Services
Throughout the 10 Days of Awe, we will have powerful prayer services that help us connect with God on a deeper level. Our dedicated clergy and leaders will guide us through sincere prayers, heartfelt songs, and meaningful sermons, creating an atmosphere of introspection, gratitude, and awe.
Our experienced clergy members will deliver thought-provoking sermons that align with the theme of each day. These sermons will offer spiritual insights, inspire personal growth, and encourage self-reflection. We believe that engaging in thoughtful contemplation during this time can lead to meaningful change in our lives.
Reflection and Repentance
The 10 Days of Awe emphasize introspection and repentance. We encourage everyone to take this time to reflect on their actions, behaviors, and relationships throughout the year. It is an opportunity to make amends, seek forgiveness, and commit to positive transformation. Our community supports each other in this process of teshuvah (returning to one's true self).
Community Gathering and Support
Connecticut Korean Presbyterian Church places a strong emphasis on the power of community and fellowship. During the 10 Days of Awe, we come together as a faith community, supporting and encouraging one another on our spiritual journeys. Together, we create an environment of unconditional love, acceptance, and understanding.
