Celebrate HumanLight with the Baltimore Coalition of Reason!

Please join us to celebrate HumanLight on Sunday, December 23rd. HumanLight is a celebration of the winter season conceived by the New Jersey Humanist Network as a humanist or secular alternative to traditional religious celebrations. HumanLight features music and the lighting of three candles celebrating Reason, Compassion, and Hope. HumanLight was first celebrated in 2001 in New Jersey and has since spread throughout the country. This year is the third celebration of HumanLight by the Baltimore Coalition of Reason. To learn more, visit the HumanLight website at .

This year we are celebrating HumanLight at the Baltimore Ethical Society. We will have a pot-luck dinner and desserts, music, and the candle lighting. This is a family-friendly event, and children are welcome.

When: 7:00-10:00 pm, Sunday, December 23, 2012
Where: Baltimore Ethical Society, 306 W. Franklin St., Suite 102

Thanks to Hugh Taft-Morales (Baltimore Ethical Society) for his address titled "Light and Enlightenment", which addressed the metaphor of light in traditional celebrations of the season.
