Join us Tuesday Dec 14 via Zoom as Co-Minister Bev Spivey shares the historical context, Bible scholarship, and metaphysical meanings of Christmas.
While still holding the magic of Christmas, we begin with a look at the historical underpinnings of Christmas, from pagan Solstice celebrations to the Roman Saturnalia. Through Biblical scholarship we understand discrepancies in Matthew’s and Luke’s versions of the Bible Christmas story. And through a deeper metaphysical view, we realize that the characters of the story live within each of us (Herod, Baby Jesus, Mary, Joseph, the shepherds). Through these different ways of examining the age-old story, we can understand and more deeply appreciate the traditions that bring Christmas alive in our hearts again and again every year.
