Guest Minister Rev. Katie Culbert: “Southern Fried Transcendentalism” – One of the best-selling books of all time, Where The Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens, is a story of a young “marsh girl” who overcomes great adversity living alone in the swamps of North Carolina. Southern culture is deeply connected to self-reliance and the natural world in a way that resembles transcendentalism, a 19th century New England philosophy shaped by Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry David Thoreau and Margaret Fuller. Where is the connection between the intellectual and idealistic world view that influenced modern day Unitarian Universalism and the spirituality of the marsh girl?
