Sharing this announcement on behalf of Dr. Marc Loustau of the Minns Lectures Committee:

The 2016 Minns Lectures are coming up on April 27May 4, and May 11 at First Church Boston by the Rev. Stephen Kendrick. The talks are being sponsored by First Church Boston and King's Chapel as part of the Minns Lectures, an annual series of public talks by prominent Unitarian Universalist clergy.

Stephen Kendrick's lectures are titled, "Kosmos: Remembering a Future for Unitarian Universalism." He will be asking us to think about the changing American religious landscape and how religious liberals can face this future boldly and creatively. Stephen writes, "In a world growing hotter by the day and more confusing in terms of religious and national borders, we could use a refresher course in Margaret Fuller's 'A New Manifestation Is at Hand,' and Emerson's cry, 'I will left up my hands and say, Kosmos!'"

Stephen Kendrick is the author of four books, Holy Clues, Night Watch (a novel), and, with his son Paul, two books of history, Sarah’s Long Walk (Beacon Press) and Douglass and Lincoln (Walker & Co.). He has also written an illustrated book for older teens (and anyone else) about UU history called, A Faith People Make. His articles have appeared in the UU World, Utne Reader, American Heritage, the New York Times travel page, and the editorial pages of the Boston Globe and the Hartford Courant.

Please tell anyone who might interested about these talks, and encourage them to register athttp://www.minnslectures.org. The talks are free. Dinner will be served at 6:00PM and the lectures will begin at 7:15PM. We would like to get as good a count of attendees as possible in advance.
