It almost made me want to go to church. The sign in front of the church opposit the Mardens (old Wal Mart) store advertised the subject for an upcoming sermon. "God With Us". Wasn't that the slogan for a well known WWII organization?
Downeast Humanists & Freethinkers celebrated its 12th anniversary on January 1, 2017! We meet in Ellsworth on the 1st Saturday of every month at 3:30 pm; upstairs at the Maine Grind. We are an Affiliate of the American Humanist Association.
Our mission: To provide a forum for discussing issues of common interest and concern to humanists and freethinkers, and to promote in the larger community the ideas of humanism and free thought.
Does this describe you?
Humanists believe that, using reason and compassion, we can live ethical and fulfilling lives. We don't look to supernatural explanations or divine intervention to solve the problems of humanity and the planet.
Freethinkers form opinions on the basis of evidence, as opposed to tradition, authority, or dogma.
