Today’s topic is Forgive
Science is all about trial and error. Thomas Edison said of his invention of the light bulb “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work” Even if something doesn’t work if you record your results and keep trying you can ultimately get it to work.
On the Day of Atonement, Yom Kippur, we think about the ways we have erred, or maybe not done exactly what we wished we had. Yom Kippur is our opportunity to give a heartfelt attempt at another try towards getting it right.
Today’s post also includes a procedure for our third #ExploreElul experiment, Invisible writing. This experiment is one that you can try multiple times with slightly different variations of lemon juice, drying time, or heat source to get potential different results. Try the experiment out and tag us @jedstem with your results.
