On 2018 December 16, Mountain Light Unitarian Universalist Church welcomes Dr. Barry Whittemore. The topic of his sermon is “Joy: The Third Sunday of Advent”. The four Sundays in the Advent season are themed peace, hope, joy, and love. We will delve into the joy of the season despite the troubled times in which we live.
The strength of Dr. Whittemore’s sermons is his expertise in applying our 7 Unitarian Universalist Principles to the process of spiritual growth, to which we all aspire in our own way, and to our personal systems of moral reasoning, which we use to live an honorable life and build our beloved community.
Dr. Whittemore is a retired Unitarian Universalist minister who served at the Georgia Mountains Unitarian Universalist Church in Dahlonega and congregations in Alabama, North Carolina, and Tennessee. He currently teaches Appalachian Studies at the University of North Georgia in Dahlonega.
Mountain Light, 2502 Tails Creek Road (GA-282 West), in Ellijay is a Welcoming Congregation. We welcome guests of all faiths, ethnicities, and gender identifications. Our coffee and fellowship begins at 10 AM, followed by the service from 10:30 to 11:30.
Our Youth Religious Education is held on the second and fourth Sundays of each month. The next one will be on Sunday, December 23. Children are welcome to attend our services in the sanctuary.
