October 19 – Rev. Erika Hewitt, “Who Do They Say I Am?”
Think you know who Jesus is? The image of Jesus has shape-shifted for a millennium; in fact, the crucifix image wasn’t used until the 10th century. This multi-media sermon illustrates how visual images of Jesus have evolved — including Unitarian and Universalist understandings of Jesus. What does it mean to portray Jesus as laughing, African-American, a clown, a “homeboy”? Come to this service, and you’ll never see Jesus the same way again.
Rev. Erika Hewitt is a worship consultant/coach and very busy wedding officiant in addition to serving as the half-time minister of the Midcoast UU Fellowship in Damariscotta, Maine. Her new book, The Shared Pulpit, is a small-group guide for laypeople to write their own sermons.
