         Happy…Eighth Day of Christmas! 
         Oh, sure, the Western world thinks I should have said “Happy New Year!”  But you know that in terms of the Christian calendar, the Christian way of marking time, we had our New Year already.  Back on November 27 which was the first Sunday of Advent.  Spiritually speaking, we turn the page on the new year the day […]

         Suppose among the residents of Bethlehem at the time of Jesus’ birth there was a young couple by the names of Susanna and Johoicachim.  They were both twenty-three, just getting started on their life together.  They had one son, who at eighteen months had learned to walk and was getting into everything, who was putting sentences together in comical ways, his soft, high pitched […]

         An unexpected light blazes on in the darkest night—that’s what today’s portion of the gospel of Luke and today’s slice of Dickens’ A Christmas Carol have in common.  The shepherds were minding their own business—tending sheep, that is—when the glory of the Lord interrupted their watch by shining on their squinting, terrified faces.  Scrooge had been warned by his ghostly […]

Date:  November 28, 2016
Sue Sutherland-Hanson, Intern at Eagle Harbor Congregational Church
 
Today, I want to talk about the nature of stories particularly in relation to the Advent scriptures we heard read, and Dicken’s  A Christmas Carol, our theme this advent season.  I want us to see how these texts relate to us and our stories.
I studied writing as ministry in seminary, and from that I often teach a class in writing spiritual […]

         Suppose Jesus Christ showed up in the neighborhood this week.  What might a contemporary Christ be wearing?  Can you picture Christ in comfortable, well-worn jeans and a T-shirt?  Inspired by the 2 Corinthians text, I suggest a vintage T-shirt from a 1970’s band: “Yes.”  This is not so much about their music as about their name and […]

Date: November 13, 2016

I was desperately trying to retain my sense of humor on Election Night, in a humor-as-a-life-preserver sort of way, when the image of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy bubbled up from somewhere in the labyrinth cellar of memory. Why? Because that fictional book […]
