Transcendence and Transcendentalism

Led by Rev. Joy Atkinson.

The religious, philosophical and literary movement of the 1830s known as American Transcendentalism emphasized personal religious experience over tradition, ecclesiastical authority and scripture. The sermon will explore how Transcendentalism transformed our Unitarian and Universalist traditions, and its relevance to our lives and to Unitarian Universalism today.
