December 16: “Dark Mystery” – Rev. Elizabeth L. Greene

“Dark Mystery,” a sermon by Rev. Elizabeth L. Greene

Winter Solstice is almost upon us, that day when we have less light and more dark than any other day of the year. Also, days are pretty short all around this period, letting us reflect upon the mysteries of light and dark in our lives, how such things affect our spirits and our spiritual outlooks.

When we are in darkness, we also live in the hope of lighter days, of the Christ Child and stars and angels, of miraculous oil-burning lamps of an ancient people. In the mystery that dark can bring, we can grow our hearts in love.

Please Note, There will be a potluck meal following the service.Please join us. All in attendance, including visitors, are welcome!

December 3: Make of Yourself a Light

candlesIn the poem, “The Buddha’s Last Instruction,” by Mary Oliver, we learn it is possible to become something of inexplicable value when we make of ourselves a light: a light of hope, compassion, peace and joy, a light that brings healing by falling first upon our own story and then spreading out to all stories.

As we enter the Yuletide season, a celebration of warmth and light in many traditions, may we take time to consider, appreciate, welcome and open our hearts to light in all its forms.

 

Reminder for members:

We have a congregational meeting immediately following the service this Sunday to vote on next steps regarding the possibility of purchasing of a permanent home.
