The beloved Disney movie is well known, but the figure of Mary Poppins is much deeper and more complex than the movie version. Our guest speaker, Rev. Gail Tapscott, will introduce you to the great Cosmic Nanny and her multi faceted creator P.L. Travers as true spiritual guides to help us better understand the interdependent web that UnitarIan Universalists honor. With a totally new MP movie coming out soon you will be prepared to understand the deeper meaning of the lady with the parrot headed umbrella.
