The Invention of Air

We celebrate the beginning of the Advent season with a trip to the past and a rendezvous with the 18th Century Unitarian minister and scientist, Joseph Priestley, a radical in religion, science and politics. His scientific experiments, inspired by progressive religious beliefs, led to breathtaking, path-breaking discoveries. These discoveries reinforced his optimistic hope that great good arises when science, reason and religion provoke and converse with each other. This is a worship service for all ages.

Thoreau is author of “Walden” and “On Civil Disobedience”. We celebrate his 200th anniversary. The Chalice Choir sings. Listen:
