Senior Minister Molly Baskette lingers a bit longer in the story of the Nativity, The story for the morning includes two dreams—one in which the Wise Ones were told to return home by another way, and another where Joseph was told to escape with his family to Egypt because his son’s life was in danger. Molly explores the power of dreams to give us glimpses of the future and how they can change our lives if we follow them. They can be portals to the divine, an entry into mystery.
