A Christmas Special – The Age of Religion

The cold weather has arrived and Christmas is right around the corner. It’s the holiday ostensibly meant to celebrate the birth of Jesus, although it’s evolved to mean so many different things. For some, it’s a party and a chance to visit with family and friends, for others it’s an important religious holy day.

But what does Christmas mean to you? What about Ramadan, or Diwali, or any of the many other holidays with an origin in religion?

There are so many religions in the world- at least 4,300. Old religions with more than a billion followers, religions lost to the sands of time, modern religions specifically designed to be ironic or  funny. Even religion based on science fiction.

In this engaging and compelling sermon, Reverend Christopher Johnson explores religious history and illuminates the interesting twists and turns in this modern Age of Religion.
