Greater Boston Humanists cosponsors this Humanist Community at Harvard panel discussion with authors Chris Stedman and Susan Katz Miller about interfaith dialogue in families and beyond, and the importance of community and interfaith activism for both secular humanists and interfaith families. How do we as humanists and atheists deal with our sometimes-religious family members, or the greater community? What do you do if your partner does not share your views? Join in a conversation with two prominent thinkers and activists on this special panel event.
There will be a light snacks for this co-sponsored lecture (Harvard Hall has limited space), starting around 12, and coffee, drinks and desserts will be provided too as the discussion continues after the 1 pm panel.
In his memoir, Faitheist, Chris Stedman (Assistant Humanist Chaplain at Harvard) describes his journey from evangelical Christian to atheist and interfaith activist. In her new book Being Both: Embracing Two Religions in One Interfaith Family, Susan Katz Miller describes her journey from interfaith child raised with Judaism, to parent raising children in an intentional interfaith families community. (Her controversial Op-Ed on interfaith families just caused a ruckus in the New York Times.)
Both books will be on sale, and the authors available for signing, with a portion of the proceeds going to the 4th Annual Interfaith Thanksgiving Meal Packing Project.
Harvard Hall is just 100 meters further into Harvard Yard from the Science Center (than Phillips Brooks House), but it's also just inside the main gate near the Harvard Square subway station (Harvard Yard exit).
FREE PARKING in the Littauer Library Lot near the Science Center will be available during the event: Enter the Science Quadrangle from Oxford St. and follow the road through to its end in the Science Center/Law Library area. Harvard Hall is in the center of Harvard Yard near the main gate (which is also accessible by the MBTA).
