Announcing a new Meetup for Portland Area Humanism Meetup!

What: You Bring the Topic! Humanist Discussion: Dealing with Doubt, Changing Beliefs

When: Sunday, January 24,[masked]:00 AM

Friendly House
NW 26th and Thurman
Portland, OR 97210

This Humanist Discussion group offers people in the process of questioning, changing their beliefs or dealing with the aftermath of having done so the opportunity to share their growth with others, to give and receive support.

We are born into social groups with established beliefs and values. Our own development and life experiences may cause us to question and doubt these ?givens,? and even bring us to a place of changing our beliefs. We all too often go through the process alone, unaware that it?s a normal part of human life. Sometimes the process requires only a small amount of intellectual adjustment but at others has implications which extend to family, friends and/or community. Sometimes the changes come easily, sometimes not. It?s good to have company while we?re going through it.

The Humanists of Greater Portland invite people dealing with doubt, and/or change and its aftermath to participate in a support/discussion group that will meet the 4th Sunday morning of each month. Discussion topics will be suggested by the participants.

Look for us in the Garden Room across the lobby from the main hall where the weekly program is presented. The facilitators will be Gretchen Quigg and Dick Mase.

Come early to meet our greeters, chat informally with other early arrivers over a cup of coffee and a cookie, browse the brochure table or settle the kids into the Children's Program.

You may be interested in perusing our book collection in the lending library where HGP members can select from a wide-ranging list of topics relating to secular humanism - open from 9:30 Sunday mornings only.

After the meetings, HGP and PAHM members gather for a no-host brunch at a nearby restaurant. All are welcome.

We look forward to meeting you! An RSVP is not required, but it will help us to know to look for you. Directions and information about the Humanists of Greater Portland here: http://www.portlandhu...
