HBUniversity (Leader: Scott Doelling)
On December 25, 1521 Martin Luther, hero of the Reformation, delivered his annual Christmas sermon based on Luke 2:1-14. Luther’s sermon is composed of 78 individually numbered discussion points – it must have lasted for hours. The print-out I have is 22 pages long.
Now fast-forward 444 years to December 9, 1965. Charles Shultz’s holiday masterpiece “A Charlie Brown Christmas” premiered on television. Linus Van Pelt spends about 90 seconds reciting the bulk of Luther’s gospel text, burning it into our collective consciousness forever.
This year’s Advent Reflection series will be based on Luke 2:1-14. We’ll look at some of Luther’s discussion points, but nowhere near all of them, and maybe see what else Linus might have to say.
Classes will be hosted via Zoom at 2:00 on each of the 4 Sundays of Advent – now through December 20.
Hope to see you there.
