Seminary for a Day: Transcendentalism

Are you yearning for greater depth in your spiritual life?
Join us in-person or virtually and delve deeper with author and former UUA President, Rev. John Buehrens. Rev. Buehrens served as UUA President, 1993-2001. A prolific author, his most recent one about our heritage is CONFLAGRATION: How the Transcendentalists Sparked the American Struggle for Racial, Gender, and Social Justice (Beacon, 2020). Rev. Buehrens will give the keynote address.
A workshop, “God Optional: Theologies Among Us Today,” will be offered by Rev. Buehrens and Rev. Rebecca Ann Parker. Buehrens and Parker surveyed the hope-filled thought patterns in progressive religion today in their book, A House for Hope: The Promise of Progressive Religion in the 21st Century (Beacon, 2010).
