In the next session of this introductory series, we will look at how a Humanist lifestance — with its naturalist worldview, ethical commitments, and community spirit – informs and contributes to our experience of meaning and purpose.

We are the products of an un-designed, evolutionary process. What meaning or purpose can there be to our lives? Do our lives really matter? Many people look to religion for answers. As humanists and naturalists, we accept that humans create their own meaning.

While designed as a series, each “Tenets” session is independent of the others and folks are welcome to attend as they are able. The three sessions together provide a comprehensive introduction to humanism for “newbies” but will also benefit those who want to explore humanism more deeply.

This event is sponsored by HumanistsMN. If you are not yet a member, please consider joining to help us cover our costs and build the humanist movement. Not ready to join? Donations are gratefully accepted! Join or donate at humanistsmn.org

The first session dealt with the naturalist worldview (August 27) and the last session will focus on the ethical foundations of humanism (September 10). This series is repeated periodically throughout the year.

Please join us for this overview of contemporary humanism as understood and practiced by a growing number of people affiliated with such organizations as the American Humanist Association, the American Ethical Union, and Humanists International.
