HOH CITY-WIDE MONTHLY GATHERING: Dennis Earl Fehr

This month features guest speaker Dennis Earl Fehr, an art history professor with an incredibly moving and powerful story of how he grew up in the fundamentalist and oppressive Apostolic Christian community (also known as "the Mechanized Amish") and took a journey that led him to humanism.

Dennis Fehr was born into a secluded religious sect that was suspicious of popular music, art, and education. He was married as a teen, through an arrangement imposed on him, to a bride he didn't know. On their disastrous honeymoon Dennis realized that his life was a complete mess due to birth circumstances he could not control. This lecture will describe how he emerged from these circumstances to create a successful life as a rock musician, an artist, and a professor.

Our City-Wide Monthly Gathering is the cornerstone of all HOH activities, where people from the entire Houston and surrounding areas are invited to come. It generally starts with announcements and a brief presentation of a humanist topic, followed by guest speaker and Q&A/discussion.

Please remember the needy: As part of an ongoing program, we encourage everyone to bring canned goods for donation to the End Hunger network.

    I understand we missed an opportunity to be out in the community and protest GMO's/Monsanto but hear that will be happening again next May.
