The sermon was delivered on Sunday, July 13, 2014, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Stephen Edington, Guest Minister.
From his early years in Okema, OK, and Pampa, TX, to his life in New York and service in the Merchant Marine, to his cross-country wanderings, Woody Guthrie cultivated a universal type of religious consciousness that shows through in his work in many ways.
The book and sermon also deal with Woody’s tragic struggle with Huntington’s Disease and the spiritual resources he drew upon at that point in his life.
