In the Nick of Time: Henry Thoreau at 200

Polly Peterson, a member of our UU Society, will be our speaker this morning.

Henry Thoreau was ever conscious of living “in the nick of time”– that is, at the meeting of two eternities, the past and future, in precisely the present moment. As we commemorate Thoreau’s bicentennial year, let’s take a look at how his experiment in mindful living might awaken us more fully to our own time and place.
