“Christmas Lights”

Rev. Ernie Mills

The success of Christianity in becoming a world religion was due to its ability to assimilate and refashion the basis mythical themes of the pagan cults of the sun and the light.  The cult of sol invictus was replaced by Christ as the “sun of righteousness.” In this meditation we will attempt to re-link Christmas lights to their primal source in the natural world and deepen our understanding and appreciation for the universal themes discoverable in particular expressions.

Rev. Mills completed a BA in Philosophy from the University of North Carolina at Asheville, a Master of Religious Education from Duke Divinity School, and a Master of Divinity from the Candler School of Theology at Emory University. He previously served as minister to the Unitarian Universalists of Transylvania County.

  Holiday Fellowship & Potluck (held at TBUUF, 835 N. Trade St., Tryon)

 

“Ain’t No Flies On Me” – Sharing Christmas Memories

Rev. Ernie Mills

One of my fondest memories of Christmas was reading the poem by Eugene Field, “Jest’ fore Christmas” in front of my senior high school class in 1969.  The laugh was on me because in reality I had plenty of “flies on me.”  You will be given an opportunity to share your fondest memories of Christmas past during this service.

Followed by TBUUF Holiday Potluck

Our Holiday Pot Luck Fellowship will be Dec. 16 at 10:30 at our usual location at 835 N. Trade Street. In order for us to plan (TBUUF will provide turkey) please RVSP by Dec. 10 with the number of people attending and if you would like to bring an appetizer, dessert or side dish to Penny Kessler at penkess@aol.com or call her at 828-894-5776.
