Transcendentalism: Then and Now
This 4-part adult religious education class titled: Transcendentalism Then and Now, will be led by Rev. Buehrens, hosted virtually at First Unitarian Rochester, and sponsored by the St. Lawrence Chapter of the UU Minister’s Association. Background reading (optional) for the course is Rev. Buehrens recent book, CONFLAGRATION: How the Transcendentalists Sparked the American Struggle for Racial, Gender, and Social Justice (Boston: Beacon Press, Jan. 2020). The book is available from Beacon Press, the UUA bookstore, or Amazon. The course will be thematic rather than following the narrative of the book. Rev. Buehrens will identify contemporary issues as well as explore the pioneering efforts of our spiritual forebears in spiritual practice, women’s rights, anti-racism, and ecotheology. The format of the course will include both lecture and discussion.
Four Sundays at 7 p.m. on Zoom: January 9,16, 23, and 30.
