SCIENCE AND SPIRITUALITY
7:30pm, Conference Room
Edwin Taylor will lead a discussion on two draft chapters of Edmund Robinson’s book, “Evil for Evil.” Robinson, former senior minister of UU Belmont, started as a lawyer; at midlife he graduated from Harvard Divinity School and became a UU minister. Before this professional shift, he had taken on on the case of a convicted murder. His first chapter recounts this case, leading up to his client’s execution. That experience led Robinson to write hisbook on evil. His first two draft chapters are at the website (eftaylor.com/sands)
