Another new year. What is it? Oh, yeah, 2017. Hope it’s better than 2016. Oh hum. Are you feeling like new year is another turn on the hamster wheel? I get it. Politics change, people come and go, life goes on. Or so it sometimes seems in the banality of middle class life. I have begun my new year with two books that have given me a kick in the needed parts. Two autobiographies by men who grew up in 1950-60s America. They have each made amazing contributions and they couldn’t be more different. Larry Brilliant and Bruce Springsteen. The first was......

Christmas Eve at The Congregational Church of Huntington can be seen as a study in contrasts. Noise and quiet. Light and dark. Crowds and solitude. We hold two very different worship services to welcome the coming of the Christ Child. The Pageant, at 5:30 PM, is full of children bursting with anticipation for Christmas. Then, at 10:00 PM, we gather as a much smaller group to quietly greet the Christ child with communion and candles. This complex mix of behaviors and emotions does justice to the stories of Jesus’ birth. It was......

The power of Christmas comes from compelling stories. A pregnant teenager and her fiancé. Visits by Angels. A mute father. Spending the night in a stable. Shepherds tending sheep. A baby born in a manger. From these simple characters and stories comes a holiday to illuminate our winter, and our lives. The power of Christmas stories continues in our own experiences. Think for a moment of the characters and stories that inhabit your Christmas picture book of memories. A child’s look of surprise. Carols sung to a friend. The sadness of an......
