Walden: A UU Celebration
Gordon Clark, Narrator
Henry David Thoreau was the perfect back-to-nature preservationist and anti-business protester; a crank and a hermit saint. He was avidly anti-slavery and avidly pro-nature. Often dismissed during his lifetime, today he has become the revered patron of ecology and non-violent civil disobedience. Thoreau’s writings of the 1840s remain astonishly prescient and imaginative today. Sunday (Nov. 26) we will dive deeply into this amazing work, using a delivery created by our congregant Clark Olsen and featuring the music of Thoreau’s contemporary Franz Peter Schubert.
