Lay Speaker: Jon Dreazan
Many of us have grown up with the tales of the Bible as part of our religious legacy. Others have grown up with tales from the Koran, Buddhist theology, Hindu theology, Pagan stories and many other sources of our theological beliefs. Along the way we have come to Unitarian Universalism with its meld of these stories and sources. Regardless, most of these stories began as myths and archetypes that long predated any type of organized religious structure. For example, most religions have a flood story, a story of spring renewal, a festival of lights in winter and perhaps a savior. I will discuss some of these myths and how they came to be inserted into our various religious canonized scriptures over the course of time.
