Our first annual HumanLight was a big success. 16 enthusiastic freethinkers came from as far away as Cherry Hill and Philly. The potluck dinner included homemade dishes like butternut lasagna, vegetarian chili, mac and cheese, southern collards, sweet potatoes and peppers, cold cuts, and gourmet veggie salad. Janice gave a great talk about Humanism and HumanLight and Lisa and Tim conducted the candle lighting ceremony on hope, compassion and reason. We sang the HumanLight song by Sonny Meadows and Imagine by John Lennon.
But the best part was just socializing with all our atheist friends, both new and old. There were lots of desserts but the highlight of the evening was the cutting of the HumanLight cake which had the colorful logo and 2011 on it. (See photos in our HumanLight album). As always, Brenda was the "Hostess with the Mostess" and made everything come off without a hitch. A Big Thanks to everyone who contrubuted...We are already looking forward to next year's HumanLight.

There are a lot of different definitions of Humanism...here is my favorite:
Humanism is a rational philosophy informed by science, inspired by art, and motivated by compassion. Affirming the dignity of each human being, it supports liberty and opportunity consonant with social and planetary responsibility. Free of supernatural beliefs, humanism derives the goals of life from human needs rather than abstractions, and asserts that humanity must take responsibility for its own destiny.

Notice: The Gloucester County Humanists and NJHN (NJ Humanist Network) are having a HumanLight celebration this Sunday in Glassboro. This is our winter holiday to celebrate the human values of reason, compassion and hope. (See www.humanlight.org.) We are seeking secular musical or spoken-word entertainment for our afternoon event. Please advise if there is anyone who would be willing and able to participate and perform for 15-20 people. Please call Bill Reitter or Brenda at [masked]
