I wrote this sermon after George Zimmerman was acquitted after Killing Trayvon Martin… and it’s still not enough this Rosh Hashanah

Seven is a significant number in Jewish tradition: Six days of creation give way, as the sun sets and the workaday week becomes the rest of Shabbat. This year, Rosh Hashanah, the new year, dubbed both “the birthday of the world” and the “day of judgment,” falls on Shabbat. It has been seven years since Florida’s heinous “stand your ground” law allowed George Zimmerman to go free after killing 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.
