"I Have Faith In Nights"
Rev. Clare Petersberger, Joyce Duncan
It is the Winter Solstice, the longest night of the year. Today we reflect on our relationship with the dark —both outside and within.
Rev. Clare Petersberger, Joyce Duncan,
and TUUC members who celebrate both Chanukah and Christmas
Tonight we celebrate stories of angels from the ancient story of the angel who awakened and fed Elijah in the wilderness to the familiar story of the heavenly host who sang to the shepherds abiding in the fields. And we celebrate the wisdom of angels not only in the ancient sacred texts of Judaism and Christianity, but also in a contemporary story of the friendship between a nine-year-old Jewish boy and a chronologically gifted Christian wood carver.
"The Angel's Song"
Rev. Clare Petersberger
Tonight we retell the ancient story of the appearance of angels to shepherds; sing familiar carols about the angel's song; and reflect with contemporary poets on different images we see and messages we hear when welcoming or pushing away"angels."
