Hello Pub Theologians,
This past Saturday, Christians around the world celebrated the life of the early Christian martyr, Saint Lucy, on what has come to be called “Saint Lucy’s Day”. If you can, watch this FABULOUS short video about Saint Lucy and her particular connection to Swedish Christianity: vimeo.com/55253944
There’s a lot of lore and tradition mixed into the history, and it’s hard to sort out what’s what, exactly. But regardless, Lucy was a martyr who crossed boundaries to serve others in need, and the light she carries has inspired many through the years.
A colleague of mine in Chicago wrote an Advent reflection this week on Santa Lucia, so check that out too, over at attawaypastor.wordpress.com.
Come ready to talk light, Lucia, and traditions of Saints in Christian spirituality.
See you at the Tap House at 5:30.
