December 24, 2023 – The Mystery of Christmas

What is Christmas? Christmas is a creation story steeped in mystery. But the birth of the baby Jesus shrinks this story and prevents us from focusing on mystery itself. We will try to fathom what mystery really is, and why it is important in life. For the Indigenous Peoples, mystery is part and parcel of their life. It gives them a sense of who they are and helps them fine tune their purpose. But for many Westerners, we live with little sense of mystery, and therefore many of us experience a diminished sense of purpose. Albert Einstein and Rabbi Heschel spoke volumes about mystery; we will let their words flow into us as we celebrate the mystery of Christmas. And we’ll sing anew, the old Christmas carols!  Andy LePage, Ph.D. will be the Service Leader.
