Sharing music and Sermon

(EST, UTC-05) (EST, UTC-05)

Unitarian Church of Montpelier, 130 Main Street, Montpelier

I am delighted to be the guest preacher for this worship service. Topic = Wonder in Darkness.

We often celebrate winter solstice for the returning of the light – but the darkness offers its own profound gifts. In the cycles of the natural world, we see the deep need for a time of rest, reflection, and integration, and by standing fully in the darkness we can prepare ourselves to see more clearly in the light. As Martin Luther King said in his day, “Only in the darkness can you see the stars.”

Talk title: Dreaming the Holy

In the Bible, we find no shortage of stories in which God speaks to us through our dreams. And this is certainly not unique to the Christian tradition! Dreams give us a language beyond words in which we meet the sacred directly.

Sleeping or waking, whether you’re a vivid dreamer or someone who remembers only the faintest wisps of your dreamworld, we can all use visual imagery to deepen our prayer life and creatively, playfully enrich our spiritual experience. https://www.unitynorthkitsap.com

This zoom worship event will be at 2.30 ET (or 11.30am Pacific) Zoom link https://us02web.zoom.us/j/83763326179#success
