Sources of Our Living Tradition: “Finding Jesus”

Rev. Dennis Hamilton and Worship Associate Mary Kay Hamilton

I grew up with a Catholic Jesus. As a young atheist, I walked away from Christianity, and Jesus, whoever he was, was in my rear-view mirror. As a Unitarian theologian though, finding the historical Jesus became a holy quest, partly to dispel all the false beliefs about this figure, but, like Thomas Jefferson, it became about finding “diamonds in the dunghill.” And as a Buddhist I began to recognize the signs of an “enlightened” person.
