This Sunday’s speaker explores the case for optimism and its relationship to Unitarian Universalist principles.
Hal Midgette is a long-time member of the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Columbus. He is retired from two careers—the first as an intelligence officer in the U.S. Army and the second as a high school science teacher in Columbus. In his presentation he’ll describe evidence for the case that there is a “positive direction” in the evolution of humanity. He’ll also explore how the Seven Principles of Unitarian Universalism align well with that positive direction. “I’m an optimist,” he says.
It promises to be a lively talk, followed by an even livelier question-and-answer session.
