An award winning preacher, scholar and social justice organizer, I am currently working on my doctorate at Harvard University where I am studying the relationship between theology and populism. Twice a month I preach at the First Parish Church, Ashby, Unitarian Universalist, where for I serve as the minister. My research has been supported by the American Studies program of Harvard University, a Harvard Merit Term-Time Fellowship, a Frederick Kettner Scholarship from the Biosophical Institute, the Fund for Nurturing Unitarian Universalist Scholarship, multiple Joseph Sumner Smith Scholarships, the Joseph Gittler Fund for Religion and Ethics, the Institute for Anarchist Studies, the Unitarian Universalist Association, and the Center for American Political Studies. Prior to returning to academia I served as a parish minister for six years. I serve on the Board for the Unitarian Universalist History and Heritage Society and am the author of two religious education curriculums and close to three dozen published essays, articles, book chapters and poems. My brother is the painter Jorin Bossen.
