Dr. Sharon Whitehill was an English professor in Michigan for over 30 years. Since retirement, however, her love of teaching has taken the form of liberal sermons, lectures, and adult-education classes in literature, film, and mythology. Recently she has been active in a UU-sponsored series, “Building the World We Dream About,” on white privilege and racial justice. She also co-facilitates a life-changing spiritual-awareness program called “Awaken to Ego, Discover Your Spirit” with her husband, Jim Meloy.
