“In Her Own Words: Poet May Sarton”
Rev. Nikki Williams
May Sarton was not a formal member of a UU congregation, but her views were so closely associated with Unitarian Universalism that she was invited to give the Ware Lecture at the 1982 General Assembly in Boston. How did this poet identify with and illuminate the UU message? Guest minister and UUCSS member Nikki Williams answers this question with excerpts from Sarton’s poetry, journals, and letters.
