Reason and Reverence Workshops
In 2017 the Rev. Suzanne will offer an Adult Religious Enhancement class on
“Religious Humanism.” Classes will be held on Monday evenings, 7:00 - 9:00 pm, on January 30th, February 27th, March 27th, May 29th, and June 5th. There will
be no class on Easter Monday (April 17th).
Topics will include the history of Humanism, definitions of “religious” and “spiritual,” the Humanist Manifestos, the many faces of Humanism [including theist, secular, Buddhist, and feminist], and the idea of reverence.
Short readings will be included before each class. Copies of the first 11 pages of Reason and Reverence by William R. Murry [the dean of Meadville Lombard Theological School when I attended] should be available at the welcoming table. For information, talk to our Administrator, Angie, at 344-5980.
