Summer’s here and the time is right for Pastor Jef to return to First Church, Cincinnati. The sermon step off point is Iris Dement’s tune, “Let the Mystery Be.”
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nlaoR5m4L80 Some of us UUs have issues with mystery and I’ll contrast Iris with a quote from notes from a long ago and far away lecture that suggest “education and communication erode mystery.” Given the demographics of most UU congregations, I'm thinking Iris is going to get a run for her money.
