Sunday, December 9 – Celebrating Light!

Continuing the celebration of Light Festivals during the Advent season, Sedona Interfaith Fellowship will honor Hanukkah this Sunday. While being a minor festival, this Jewish celebration has become honored over time, a festival of lights in which menorahs are seen burning everywhere, acknowledging the miracle that occurred in 165 B.C., when Judah Maccabbee led a small band of rebels in reclaiming Jerusalem and the temple.  Upon lighting the temple menorah for their rededication, they discovered there was enough oil for only one day, but the lamp miraculously burned for eight days.

Sunday Gatherings are an opportunity for you the participant to go on an inner journey, to explore what spirituality means to you.  As you open up to the wisdom found in the worlds of spirituality, psychology, theology, and the fragile complexities of what it means to be a part of humanity, the opportunities and possibilities are boundless.

The following Sunday, the 16th, the Fellowship will use the Hindu light festival of Divali during this time of preparation, leading to a candlelight gathering on Christmas Eve.  No Sunday Gathering on December 23.

We look forward to connecting with you this Sunday!
