What are the implications of embracing a philosophy or life stance in this ever changing and challenging world? How can Humanism inform our choices and guide our interactions with others? These are some of the questions we’re discussing in our new online group called “Exploring Humanism.”
We meet once a month, on the 1st Sunday, to share our thoughts on the basic tenets of Humanism, along with Humanistic approaches to an array of social issues and problems. We’re using as our guide the basic online studies program of the American Humanist Association Center for Education and will focus on one of the courses in the program each month.
