Reflections on Jesus from the “Second Half of Life”

Psychoanalyst Carl Jung said, “One cannot live the afternoon of life according to the program of life’s morning; for what was great in the morning will be of little importance in the evening, and what in the morning was true will at evening become a lie.” At this service Rev. Carl Gregg will consider how he reads the sacred texts today (six years into becoming a UU minister) compared to how he did in 2003, when he was ordained as Progressive Christian pastor. He shares, “Among many reasons why that is the case, perhaps the biggest is that my worldview has changed. As the saying goes, “We see the world not merely as it is, but as we are.” ”

The Rev. Dr. Carl Gregg holds a Doctor of Ministry and a Diploma in the Art of Spiritual Direction from San Francisco Theological Seminary, a Master of Divinity from Brite Divinity School, Fort Worth, TX, and a Bachelor of Arts in Religion and Philosophy (cum laude, Phi Beta Kappa) from Furman University, Greenville, SC. Carl was married in 2007 to Magin LaSov Gregg. They have two cats (Kol Nidre and Shamash Chaim) and two dogs (Dobby Templeton and Scout “Boo Radley”). He has been the minister at the UU Congregation of Frederick (Maryland) since July 2012. Carl is also Featured Blogger on Patheos.
