From December to around April (this year), through the telling of the life and death of Jesus, anyone willing to partake is invited into a season in which life and death, and the mysteries therein, are meditated upon. And it isn’t just Christians who do this, as you well know.
Research has proven that couples who are generous by doing things for their significant others so simple as taking out the trash, putting the coffee on in the morning, or giving surprise gifts are far happier than their counterparts who do not. In sum, generosity isn’t just appreciated by the recipient, it actually makes life happier.
On this special Sunday, the congregation will celebrated the installation of the Rev. Brian Mason as Minister to the First Universalist Unitarian Church of Wausau. The sermon was delivered by the Rev. Earl Holt, with a special message to the congregation from UU Wausau’s last ministerial intern, the Rev. Jim Coakley.
On this Sunday before Halloween, we honor the memory of the dead, or as Rev. Brian thinks of them, the saints among us.
