The Rev. Brian Mason
This Sunday’s sermon will be an exploration of Transcendentalism, one of the intellectual movements that has informed Unitarian Universalism since it began, in the middle of the 19th Century. Ralph Waldo Emerson, once a rising star in Unitarianism, resigned his Boston pulpit to become, well, Emerson, the sage of Concord, and a founding member of the Transcendental Club. More than a just philosophy, Transcendentalism changed how nature and spirituality are regarded. At its core, Transcendentalism celebrates the goodness of people and the splendor of creation. This morning we will learn how Transcendentalism, and its leaders and sources, inform our religious movement today.
