Second Sunday of Christmas, January 3, 1999

This sermon compares the sun-rise with the Son-rise, the birth of Christ. The darkest and longest night is overcome and the days grow longer once more. The darkness of sin and evil is described and the light no darkness can overcome is proclaimed and it has the power to renew our hearts. When I tell about Teilhard de Chardin, I speak about the birth of life and the birth of thought from life. He speaks about the crossing the collective threshold of thought. I think the Internet may be a step in his direction. When I tell of the birth of love from thought, I have taken Teilhard one step further.

Note that clicking on this .pdf- file makes it appear at 170%. It is easy to go up to the tool bar and make it 125 or 100%. That makes it much more pleasant reading.
