Fellow Blue Hills Unitarian-Universalist, Dr. Mark Van Etten hosts the Service Sunday, May 1st and plans to provoke those attending with the question: “Utopia, Really?” Using Rutger Bregman’s book “Utopia for Realists” as a starting point, Mark will launch those attending into a discussion as to whether this concept of utopia is useful – are his utopian ideals realistic? What would Utopia(s) would look like to YOU?
Now retired from Spooner Health medical staff, Dr. Van Etten remains deeply involved in community and family life and has been an annual Birkie skier for many years. He’s been heard to claim that living in the town of Greater Madge is abit of a Utopia all of it’s own.
