In the Service:
Sunday, October 21, “Thomas Starr King Revealed,” Sigrin Newell
In California in the 1860s, Unitarian minister Thomas Starr King worked with John Muir to save Yosemite. He also started a predecessor of the Red Cross and helped California join the Union as a free rather than as a slave state. Two mountain peaks and a UU seminary are named in his honor. With the help of David and Debbie Reep McCloud we will explore a fascinating, little known piece of American and UU history. This service will be in our Sanctuary.
Dr. Sigrin Newell has been active with Albany UU for nearly 30 years. She recently retired from Walden University, a distance-learning graduate school where she taught education to doctoral students.
