Read Leader Resource 2, At Concord with the Emersons. Use these questions to help you find connections between your own theology and Fuller's:
- Fuller says, "What is done here at home in my heart is my religion." What does she mean? Where do you locate your religion? In your head, your heart, both, or somewhere else?
- Fuller declares "A path has been appointed me." Has a pathway been appointed you? How do you know this?
Read the story "Margaret Fuller's Mystical Experience." Think about:
- What elements of her story resonate for you, challenge you, or trouble you?
- Have you ever had what you might describe as a mystical experience?
