Emerson, Part I: “Behind the Transcendental Veil” The Reverend Drew Kennedy

Please join us as we start a two-part sermon series on Ralph Waldo Emerson, an American legend.  In this first of two services, Drew will take us behind the scenes to Emerson’s personal family life where we find the roots of his own vocational and personal identity struggle.  It is out of this deep, personal struggle that his wonderfully compelling personal philosophy finally emerges – just as ours may. Special music by Mary Terranova.

The Reverend Drew Kennedy has served in the Unitarian Universalist ministry for more than 40 years.  Drew is now retired and serves as the Minister Emeritus at the First Unitarian Society of Milwaukee.  With degrees in philosophy and ministry, Drew has been honored by the Wisconsin ACLU, the Unitarian Universalist Association, and Meadville Lombard Theological School.  He has been interviewed by National Public Radio, Wisconsin Public Radio, and ABC World News Report.  Drew has also twice been arrested for civil disobedience, but central to his ministry has always been his Sunday morning “Reflections.”  Please join us.
