Tense Times, Part 2:  Living in the Present Tens-ion.

Rev. Jessica P. Rodela and The Spirit of Life Choir, directed by Rich Hrytzak

This winter I reflected on our personal relationship to history through the lens of literary genius:  The Great Gatsby, House of the Spirits, and The Essays of Ralph Waldo Emerson.    Today we continue our exploration of how our stories of the past impact our choices in the present and our possibilities for our future.

Wherein Lies the Wisdom of the World.

Rev. Jessica P. Rodela

This season’s GRU READS challenge is a collection of essays by Unitarian Ralph Waldo Emerson.  Emerson wrote:   “Foolish people ask you, when you speak what they do not wish to hear, "How do you know it is the truth, and not an error of your own?" We know the truth when we see it, from opinion, as we know when we are awake that we are awake.”  Is this poet-sage still relevant to us today?  Join the conversation this fall and explore.
