Our winter holiday season holds inspiration for us this Sunday before Christmas. The Gospel that is attributed to John holds a different kind of Christmas story. One that is full of light, hope, grace. Hanukkah menorahs, more lights that through grace gave hope, and continue to inspire. And there is Midwinter, when at last we see the passing of the longest night of the year. With the dawn we begin to see the gracious gift of daylight becoming longer. It reminds us that there is hope for a spring full of new life.
Ordained in 1992 at his childhood church, Maple Lawn Christian Church (Joliet, IL), Rev Adam has always tried to be ready to share his ministerial gifts and abilities whenever and wherever they are called for. He has served as both a volunteer and paid minister in both churches and parachurch organizations. From his work with the homeless at the Inner Cities Ministries (Springfield IL) thru his time as assistant minister at First UU Church of Houston he has been shaped by the progressive revelation and discovery of the Divine he understands as God. After a much needed break from formal ministry to do some intense work on becoming a healthier person he likes to think that mentally emotionally physically and spiritually he is more whole now than he has ever been.
