Praying with Waldo: reclaiming the spiritual practices of nineteenth-century Unitarians
Robert M Hardies
Contemporary Unitarian Universalists can enrich their spiritual lives by reclaiming the spiritual disciplines of their nineteenth-century Unitarian and Transcendentalist ancestors. Using sermons, devotional manuals, journals, memoirs, letters and other primary source material, the author rediscovers and reconstructs the spiritual theology and spiritual practices of nineteenth-century Unitarians and Transcendentalists. He creatively re-appropriates and re-packages these practices for use by contemporary Unitarian Universalists, including teaching handouts and syllabi for congregational and graduate school classes. The project demonstrates the potential of this work to enrich contemporary Unitarian Universalist spirituality.
