Sunday, August 19
Rev. Barry Andrews, Cedars speaker, with Greg Bedinger, worship associate
It’s been one hundred and fifty years now since Henry Thoreau died, but his influence has only grown with the passage of time. His legacy is felt in many ways: his uncompromising resistance to civil injustice, his passionate embrace of nature and the environment, his radical insistence on personal and planetary sustainability, and his eloquent summons to awaken to a higher and more spiritual life. Rather than give a sermon about Thoreau, I invite you to hear from the man himself, in his own words. (Barry is author of Thoreau as Spiritual Guide: A Companion to Walden as well as other books on 19th century Unitarian Transcendentalists.
