Sunday December 17th- “The Light Of The World”
Rev. Barry Bloom
Jesus was described by many as the “light of the world.” There was great hope that he, the Messiah, would change the world. The poor would finally inherit the earth. He was not actually born in the season that we celebrate. Probably a spring baby. Many of the mystical aspects of the birth story are more myth than “fact.” But his followers started a religion that now counts more than a billion members worldwide. Something important is true and right here. We need listen. What does this mean for us as UU’s?
