"Today's Day"

Postponed* Fast of Gedalia. Avinu malkeinu (p. 277). S'lichot.
Torah lessons: Chumash: B'racha, first parsha with Rashi.
Tehillim: 23-28. Also 97-99.
Tanya: However, it is (p. 503) ...of the En Sof. (p. 505).

A resume of my father's explanation of the first method (of teshuva, see above):

T: Tamim..., "Be sincere with G-d."1 This represents the avoda of teshuva that comes through sincerity. Sincerity, or "wholeness," takes any number of forms and has many levels. In reference to teshuva the highest form is wholeness of heart - called "earnestness"; as Torah says of Avraham, "you found his heart faithful2 before You."3

*. The fast of Gedalia is observed on the day after Rosh Hashana, except when that day is Shabbat. Then the fast is held on Sunday.
1. Devarim 18:13.
2. I.e. "whole."
3. Nechemya 9:8.
