This week at uuworld.org: Merry Christmas!
Meg Barnhouse finds herself at a Keith Urban concert, thanks to the kindness of a man who came to hear her perform at a coffee shop, which leads her to reflect on the reality and power of miracles.
From the archives for Christmas: Carl Scovel writes about Christmas pageants: "They're like war, childbirth, and one microsecond of a holy visitation." Michael Timko explains how Charles Dickens's Christmas Carol reflects the central ideas of nineteenth-century Unitarianism. And Ken Sawyer looks back at Edmund Hamilton Sears's Unitarian Christmas carol, "It Came Upon a Midnight Clear."
In the news, Don Skinner reports that the UUA has purchased ads in 13 college bowl game programs. Don also reports on the murder-suicide that has rocked the Clearwater, Fla., UU congregation. And Sonja Cohen rounds up a final week's Unitarian Universalists in the media; the news blog is on vacation this next week.
I'm going on vacation, too, so those of you who count on Philocrites to let you know about new content at uuworld.org might want to take this opportunity to subscribe to the magazine's weekly email newsletter or check out the magazine's feeds.
