Human Light Celebration Thursday Dec 23, 2010 7:00 pm
Human Light -- a humanist holiday we can believe in! Human Light celebrates the positive potential in human beings, including reason, compassion, and hope, and looks to a positive future. Please join us for dinner at 6 pm (sign up at 510 525 0302 by Tues at 5, or bring a brown bag), followed by a service of singing, participation, and celebration of humanist values. A way to come to church without losing your mind!
