Dec 11, 2022: "Good News of Great Joy" With Rev. Dr. Nancy Jay Crumbine

The celebration of Christmas was considered by the English Puritans to be so heretical that they sought to curtail all festivities by an act of Parliament in 1644. Christmas was outlawed in Massachusetts for many years.  Interesting: How theologically dangerous might it be to celebrate God’s coming to earth as an infant? And why does this metaphor, this story of birth, still resonate with us today? An advent/Christmas celebration.  Beautiful music. Bring friends and relations!

Nancy Jay Crumbine is a Unitarian Universalist minister, a professor emeritus at Dartmouth College, a writer, actor, and public speaker. She has lectured widely under the auspices of the Vermont and New Hampshire Humanities Councils, the National Council for the Aging, the National Endowment for the Humanities, and various educational conferences, both in the US and the UK. She is the author of Humility, Anger, and Grace: Meditations Towards a Life that Matters and The Unitarian Paradox. Her articles and poems appear in a number of anthologies and magazines, most recently in The Inquirer, the UK’s equivalent of the UU World. She speaks regularly at First Universalist Parish of Chester, VT, and has spoken many times here at our Unitarian Universalist Meetinghouse and on zoom to our congregation. She is delighted to return this Sunday in person
