Join us in Muchos Nachos on Tuesday 26th November to hear from Hannah Timson on 'The Religious and the Secular: True Enemies?'.
As our country becomes more non-religious, public life is becoming increasingly secular, despite the fact that we have an established church and a state religion. The focal points of social life, which have historically been religious, are fading away.
Following the rise of the New Atheist movement around the turn of the century, you might be forgiven for believing that 'The Religious' and 'The Secular' are at completely different ends of the spectrum, that secularism and atheism are necessarily intertwined and that non-religious people have nothing to learn from religion.
In this talk, Hannah will address the rising levels of loneliness in the UK and the falling levels of religiosity, as well as looking at whether there is anything that religious groups can teach the non-religious about community and the importance of tradition. Does secularism necessarily entail the decline of religious traditions?
Once an evangelical Christian, Hannah is a Masters student studying Sociology at the University of Exeter. She recently graduated with a first in Theology and Religion and her research focus is on the growth and development of non-religious communities and dialogue between religious and non-religious people.
Hannah was President and President Emeritus of Humanist Students, the student section of Humanists UK from[masked] where she oversaw a rebrsnding and the beginning of Nonreligious Pastoral Care in Universities. She has appeared on television on 'Living with the Amish' (2011) and on podcasts including 'Unbelievable?'.
All are welcome — we look forward to an engaging and informative evening. Entry is £3.
