In November I was interviewed by Robin Lindley at Folio, the Seattle Atheneum, on the topic of my latest book, Transcendentalism and the Cultivation of the Soul, published by the University of Massachusetts Press.
This Sunday, December 30, I will be speaking at Cedars Unitarian Universalist Church on Bainbridge Island on the topic of religious naturalism, which I take to be the theological position of the Transcendentalists and today’s religious humanists. Cedars Unitarian Universalist Church is located at 8553 NE Day Rd, Bainbridge Island, WA 98110.
On February 3, 2019, I will speak at the Northlake Unitarian Universalist Church in Kirkland on the subject of Transcendentalist spirituality. The church is located at 308 4th Ave S, in Kirkland, WA.
And then on the weekend of March 8-10, 2019, I will be in Port Townsend, WA. On Friday evening I will offer a reading from Transcendentalism and the Cultivation of the Soul. On Saturday I will lead a workshop on Transcendentalist spirituality. On Sunday I will speak on “Dancing on the Edge of the Abyss,” Emerson’s wisdom on the art of aging. These programs are being offered by Quimper Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, located at 2333 San Juan Ave, Port Townsend, WA 98368. (Contact https://www.quuf.org for further information.)
Rock and roll on the road with transcendentalism, Barry! I’m about half way through your new book and I’m enjoying it. Well done!
Thank you, Drew. It’s nice to hear from you. Retirement gives me more leisure to read and write. I’ve also taken to cooking. There are quite a few UU churches in the Puget Sound area, so I’ve gotten a number of opportunities to do pulpit supply. I hope your retirement is as enjoyable as mine has been.
