Event Description:

Unitarian Universalist scholar David Robinson has remarked, “Like a pauper who searches for the next meal, never knowing of the relatives whose will would make him rich, American Unitarians lament their vague religious identity, standing upon the richest spiritual legacy of any American denomination.” Robinson is referring to the spiritual legacy of American Transcendentalism. In this lecture, he will attempt to describe Transcendentalism and its relevance for spiritual seekers today. No sign-up required. 

Before his retirement seven years ago, Dr. Barry Andrews served UU congregations in Spokane, San Diego, and on Long Island as parish minister and religious educator. He has written and edited books on Emerson, Thoreau, and Margaret Fuller. His latest book is Transcendentalism and the Cultivation of the Soul, published in 2017 by the University of Massachusetts Press. He was a Scholar in Residence at the Thoreau Institute, a Merrill Fellow at Harvard Divinity School, and a recipient of the UU Angus H. MacLean Award for Excellence in Religious Education.
