December 9 – Rev. Phil Sweet

Rev. Phil Sweet


The first Christians had no particular interest in the birth of Jesus. Only Matthew and Luke mention it in their gospels and when the other New Testament writers refer to it, it is in the heavenly terms of God sending forth his son and not at all in the earthly details in which it occurred. So what are the facts and the legends of the birth of Jesus and what are their meanings?

Phil Sweet is a long-time friend of UUFDC, and a marvelous and insightful story-teller. He served as minister of Hope Church in Sturgeon Bay and two rural churches in western Minnesota.
