Small Discussion Group ~ Humanism and significant life events

One of the roles that a religious community has played in our culture is to acknowledge major life events like births, coming of age, weddings and funerals. As we become a post-theological society, who takes over that role? How do we celebrate and mourn together in ways that are appropriate, supportive and meaningful without falling back on our traditional, religious ways? How do we accommodate the mixed religious feelings of those who benefit from these rituals?

Join us for a small discussion about how you would handle major life events and share your experiences with what has worked and what has not.

We start the meeting at 7:00 and discussion usually gets started at 7:15. We usually finish around 8:30.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
