I've met a wonderful sister in the Lord and her blog, Fan Into Flame, is such a blessing. This last post really resonated with my spirit and I think you will be just as blessed:

At sundown today, the observance of Yom Kippur begins in Judaism. Also known as the Day of Atonement, Yom Kippur is the most solemn and important of the Jewish holidays. The Ten Days of Repentance, which began on Rosh Hashanah, culminates on the tenth and final day with Yom Kippur.
For 25 hours, practicing Jews pray and fast, seeking atonement for their sins. Historically observed on the tenth day of Tishrei (the tenth day of the seventh month as outlined on the Hebrew calendar) in accordance with Leviticus 23:27, Yom Kippur 5769 begins this year at sundown on October 8th and continues through the evening of October 9th.
As Christians, how should we acknowledge this Jewish high holy day?" Read Kathryn's enlightening post here: Once and For All
