The Unitarian poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s 1863 poem “I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day” reminds us what Christmas can mean in difficult times and will serve as the touchstone for Rev. Norris’ exploration on this special evening service. Our multi-generational celebration is highlighted by choir performances and our traditional candle lit final hymn.
In a world where the fastest growing religious identity is “Spiritual But Not Religious”, these events take on an even greater role. Rev. Norris will explore with us what happens when we use popular culture for our meaning making schema and asks why those Jedi are so fixated on Balance in the Force.
Rev. Aaron Norris had an interesting experience when researching his sermon for this week as we explore the theme of Peace. When he began typing the words "Does Peace...", his computer finished the sentence with "Does Peace Corps Still Exist?" Eighteen years after he returned from his service in west Africa, he'll explore his answer to that question with us.
Here you will find recent sermons, some audio, some video.
