Upcoming NUUF Social Events
Discussion with special guest Dan McKanan - Feb 9
Dan McKanan, the Ralph Waldo Emerson Unitarian Universalist Senior Lecturer at Harvard Divinity School, is visiting us on February 9th and will lead discussion on two different topics: Intentional Communities (ex. transcendentalist communities, therapeutic housing communities and eco-villages) and the UUA's current conversations around white supremacy. He will talk about his research and involvement in both topics and would then like to hear from NUUF people about their own thoughts and experiences. Afterwards the discussion will be continued informally around dinner at a nearby restaurant for those who are interested.
Here is an article about intentional communities that he has suggested to read for context:

Nature and Wonder: The Emerson Legacy
A reverence for nature threads its way through Unitarian Universalism in our history, theology, spiritual practice, architecture, ritual and in the writings of Ralph Waldo Emerson and others. In this interactive retreat, we will work together on how nature informs our theology, spiritual practice and worship today.
Join us for a weekend of learning, discussion, worship, reflection, singing, socializing, and friendship for all ages — and for the chance to explore one of the most beautiful cities in Europe.
Families welcome! We will have a full retreat program of learning and fun for children and teens.
Registration is now open.
