The New American Transcendentalism

Join Rev. John Crestwell, guest minister from the UU Church of Annapolis, as he contrasts the primary (fundamentalist) and secondary (mystic) stories undergirding religion and American culture. He will explore how Transcendentalism in the 19th century is re-emerging in the 21st century, and what that means for the future of Unitarian Universalist congregations.
Special music by Khalid Alzouma, piano.
