Sunday, July 19, 2015: “Religious Humanism”

Host/Presenter: Ray Cross

The Magic Valley Unitarian Universalist Fellowship will discuss the different approaches to the Humanist view of life and how each relates to liberal religion. What is Religious Humanism? Is this the very best name for one of the branches of humanism?

Is it possible to be religious and a Humanist at the same time? Are all Humanists Atheists or Agnostics or are they all radical religion haters?

Can we build a more humane society through “an ethics based on human and other natural values in a spirit of reason and free inquiry”? We may be surprised at how closely Humanism relates to Unitarian Universalism and perhaps our own personal beliefs.

Please join us this Sunday to learn more about Humanism.

As Unitarian Universalists, we have a proud tradition of responding to the imperatives of love and justice to work with those of us who are marginalized and oppressed in society and the world. Unitarian Universalists covenant to affirm and promote the inherent worth and dignity of every person; justice, equality and compassion in human relations; and acceptance of one another.

Child care is available. Please join us Sunday at our new location located in the Vendor Blender and Event Center, 588 Addison Avenue West, at 10:30 AM. Newcomers of all religious paths or none at all are always welcome. We are handicapped accessible. The Vendor Blender is located near the old hospital near the intersection of Martin St. and Addison Avenue West. Please park in the rear of the building and use the entrance on the west side of the building.
