The sermon was delivered on Sunday, December 21, 2014, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Dr. Marlin Lavanhar, Senior Minister.
In this season when our current culture bombards us with commercialism, consumerism, and Christian ardor, let us take a moment to step out of the clamor and remember the solstice and how nature is a source of our renewal and hope. People in ancient times were much more connected to the cycles of nature. They spent more time outside. They cultivated the earth on a daily basis, had substantially fewer conveniences and comforts so that the seasons had an even more essential and inexorable influence on their lives. Winter solstice was an important time of celebration and had a role in helping people face their fears with hope and joy.
