On September 19th, 1836, Ralph Waldo Emerson in response to a letter from Frederick Henry Hedge calling for a “symposium” gathered with like-minded thinkers to engage in a free discussion of theological and moral subjects. Those who gathered sought a way to find meaning that was inherently and personally grounded in a sense of connection to the divine deemed by Emerson as the Oversoul. Is there such a thing as the divine and are human beings innately created in the image of the divine? Join Rev. Dr. Marjorie Matty as she considers a walk-through transcendentalism and our connection with something larger than oneself.
