Walking With Ralph Waldo Emerson
Julianne Lepp, Guest Speaker
Walking in the path of Ralph Waldo Emerson, we encounter a great writer and theologian, a literary and social influence on national culture, a proponent of direct religious experience in nature and one of our most famous Unitarian forbears. Emerson wrote prolifically through many trials of grief and through his life experiences. What can we learn by walking with Emerson?

What Are We Missing
Chris Highland, Guest Speaker
With stories from his years of chaplaincy in jails, streets and a private school, his journey from faith to freethinking, and his deep delight in Nature, Chris will present central questions that awaken curiosity for both secular and spiritual people.

Chris Highland teaches classes on Freethought at the UNCA Reuter Center and writes the weekly “Highland Views” columns for the Asheville Citizen-Times. Now a humanist celebrant, he was an interfaith chaplain in jails and on streets in the San Francisco Bay area for decades. His new book, A Freethinker’s Gospel, will be published by Pisgah Press this fall. Chris and his wife, Carol, a Presbyterian minister, live in North Asheville.
