Dr. Susan Copeland on “Charles McCartney: God, Grace and the Goat Man”

For decades the Goat Man was an odd and persistent traveler on southern highways, including some in Georgia. Come to our Sunday service for the rest of the story. (We begin at 10:45 a.m. All are welcome.)

Dr. Susan Copeland

Our guest speaker, Dr. Susan Copeland, is a professor of English and director of a master of arts program at Clayton State University in Morrow, GA. Her publications include critical works on American literature and on the scholarship of teaching and learning. She has also written about the strange phenomenon of Charles McCartney, the Goat Man.

Our services begin at 10:45 a.m., but join us for coffee, refreshments and conversation at 10:15 a.m. Services typically are centered on a talk—either by a member of our Fellowship or by a guest speaker, like Dr. Copeland. Services also include some music, a little meditation and opportunities (always optional) to add your own thoughts.

Unitarian Universalists (UUs) don’t share a creed. Rather, we support each other in our own free and responsible searches for truth and meaning. For us, dogma is less important than treating our fellow human beings with respect. Visitors are always welcome.
