Bask in the Light

We celebrate the shortest day of the year by reminding ourselves to pass on the light of Christ and bask in the light that came in the darkness.

The real sermon text is “The Shortest Day” by Susan Cooper.

Lighting Up the World

Preached by Nathan Willard on January 5, 2014 in Ankeny UCC
Sermon Text John 1:1-18

We get uncomfortable with the myths and mysteries of our faith, the things that go beyond our facts. With the incarnation, we are reminded that Jesus remains bigger than the worldview we can imagine. Here, we are able to transcend social boundaries and access the great narrative of God’s creation. We just need to bring the light to the borderlands of our society and remind them that they, too, are loved.
