    Rev. Dr. Michael Schuler: A Few Words in Favor...
    10 AM - 11 AM

    • Date: June 16, 2024

    Meeting ID: 963 8906 6044 Passcode: 554616 A Few Words in Favor of Heresy We’ll take a deep dive into the history of the concept, lifting up a few notables who wore the label as a badge of honor. We’ll also see how the charge of “heresy” has evolved from a serious capital offense to one that is seldom taken seriously. Unitarian Universalism was once the quintessential religious heresy. Is that still the case? Bio: Michael A. Schuler served for thirty years as the Parish Minister of the First Unitarian Society of Madison. He earned his BA in political science from Eckerd College, received his M.Div. from Starr King School for the Ministry, and holds a Ph.D. in the Humanities from Florida State University. He has conducted workshops on church growth and sustainability across the country and in June 2011 he delivered two major addresses and sermons at the Annual General Assembly of UU Congregations. In May 2009 Berrett-Koehler published Michael’s book, Making the Good Life Last: Four Keys to Sustainable Living. In retirement, Schuler continues to write and his next book, “Humanism: In Command or in Crisis?” is scheduled for release later this year. He also posts new essays on a regular basis on his website, www.maschuler.com. He is a life-long distance runner and practices yoga, Chi Gong and Tai Chi. He has been married to Trina for 49 years and their son, Kyle, manages a curriculum design team for a software company in the Twin Cities.
