One of the key commitments a Unitarian Universalist makes is to live with authenticity. This service will explore the life and work of Mary Anne Evans (whose pen name was George Eliot), one of England’s greatest novelists who had to battle the larger society to declare her authentic life. She was active in a Unitarian Chapel in London and her story inspires us to be our fullest and truest self.
