May 12: The Ecstatic Emerson
Last month there was a slighting reference to Emerson in the UUWorld magazine, to which I took great offense. Briefly, the lack of cohesiveness in the UUA was blamed on Emerson's philosophy of radical individualism, called by him, "self-reliance." Never was a philosophy more unfortunately named! So what is "self-reliance," and what does it have to do with you and me? Coordinated by Terri O'Brien.

We shall share a short service of mutual affirmation and welcoming of new members before
